FULL TIME: The British & Irish Lions finally get over the line against the All Blacks. It was a close game despite the fact that Sonny Bill Wiliams was sent off after 25 minutes.

G'Day and welcome to our live coverage of the second Test, between New Zealand and the British & Irish Lions, from Westpac Stadium, in Wellington.
The British and Irish Lions have their backs to the wall and will try everything in their power to keep the series alive. They will have to show what they are made of if they want to avoid a New Zealand victory and a potential whitewash.
New Zealand have made two changes for this Test. Ben Smith and Ryan Crotty, are both out due to injury. Waisake Naholo and Anton Lienert-Brown are therefore included in the starting lineup. Naholo will be on the right wing with Israel Dagg moving to fullback. Lienert-Brown is at centre and Ngani Laumape comes onto the bench.
Sam Warburton returns as captain for the British & Irish Lions and replaces Peter O'Mahony. Johnny Sexton starts at flyhalf, while Owen Farrell shifts to inside centre ahead of Ben Te'o. Maro Itoje replaces George Kruis. On the bench Courtney Lawes, Jack Nowell and CJ Stander enters the squad after solid performances against the Hurricanes.
Our referee is Jérôme Garcès, from France. He will be assisted by his fellow countryman Romain Poite and Jaco Peyper, from South Africa. The TMO is George Ayoub, from Australia.
The teams are out on the field and it is time for the New Zealand National Anthem.
The All Blacks are now performing the Haka!
