Chris Rattue runs the rule over the All Blacks and British and Irish Lions following last night's test in Wellington.

Israel Dagg 7

Can we pinch the famous Douglas Bader analogy...great in the air, not so flash on the ground. Bit slow in covering Faletau try.

Waisake Naholo 6
Made some runs but also looked a bit lost...dropped a simple high ball. Departed with head knock.

Anton Lienert-Brown 7
Worked hard to make a difference without ever doing so...forced to pack as a flanker which was tough on him.

Sonny Bill Williams 1
Deserved the 25th minute red card for a stupid dangerous shoulder to Watson's head, which changed the game. Also a silly kick.

Rieko Ioane 5
No country for young men. Isolated.

Beauden Barrett 7
Win and he kicked ABs to victory. Lose, and he missed three penalties. Well contained, tactically tested. Switched to fullback.

Aaron Smith 6
Needed to run a bit. Less shouting, more action would be a good idea.

Kieran Read 8
Tried his heart out, ran into brick walls, and kept doing so. Led by example.

Sam Cane 7
Smashed Farrell...otherwise solid which is his calling card. Sometimes it is enough, sometimes not.

Jerome Kaino 6
One big run over Farrell the highlight before getting yanked in the red card reshuffle.

Sam Whitelock 6
Looked tired. Outplayed in the air compared to Itoje. One win from three v these Lions.

Brodie Retallick 8
Not up to last week's heroics but among the All Blacks' best, and very strong early on.

Owen Franks 5
Might have had a scrum edge but offered little around the field.

Codie Taylor 8
Put in a big shift, without any Dane Coles-type magic. Lineouts good enough on wet night.

Joe Moody 7
Got his hands on the ball a few times, made most of this tackles.

Reserves
Nathan Harris (Taylor, 79m) -
Token gesture.

Wyatt Crockett (Moody, 53m) 5
Little impact.

Charlie Faumuina (Franks, 53m) 5
Little impact. Gave up match-losing air tackle penalty...but a tough rule when ball carrier leaps.

Scott Barrett (Whitelock, 73m) 6
Made a couple of runs and could have been called on earlier.

Ardie Savea 7 (Cane, 64m) 7
Hurtled into the game with his trademark gusto.

TJ Perenara 6 (Smith, 66m) 6
No running from him either...added to lack of halfback energy.

Aaron Cruden (Naholo, 59m) 3
Bad moments. Stupid block/penalty led to Murray try. Silly glory-seeking cross kick at the end.

Ngani Laumape (Kaino, 26m) 6
A one man stampeded - a couple of great runs. Is there more to him though?

Lions
Liam Williams 6
Only a hint of last week's attacking prowess. Dropped two high balls. Try assist.

Anthony Watson 7
A tricky customer, especially when he cuts in. Made a big run leading to Murray try.

Jonathan Davies 7
One lovely clever pass, some solid charges. A very dependable cog.

Owen Farrell 8
Landed the goals and that's what counts in victory. Nice interplay with Sexton. Stood up to a bit of a battering.

Elliot Daly 6
Tidy, with nice touches.

Johnny Sexton 9
The difference. Unlocked some clever attack, clicked with Farrell, sleight of hand, great re-starts.

Conor Murray 8
Composure his middle name, and a fine try to set up a shot at history. Didn't over-do the kicking.

Taulupe Faletau 7
Great finish for try, past Dagg, but not a constant presence.

Sean O'Brien 8
Kept hammering away on defence and attack throughout. One of the heroes, without a doubt.

Sam Warburton 6
On the face of it a quiet game from the captain, but he led Lions to victory which is what counts.

Alun Wyn Jones 7
Immense first half even if he doesn't have another gear. Smashing tackle on Franks helped set the stage.

Maro Itoje 9
Gobbled up All Black re-starts, plenty of runs, tackled his heart out. Has the X-factor.

Tadhg Furlong 6
One brutal early run, carrying Kaino along. Even a dinky pass. Little else, and couldn't hurt depleted All Blacks scrum.

Jamie George 8
Definitely one of the tour stars, in a hard working way. Great run off short Farrell pass led to try.

Mako Vunipola 6
Mr Controversial made a difference...but heavily penalised and pushed the boundaries with yellow card hit on prone Barrett.

Reserves
Ken Owens DNP

Jack McGrath (Vunipola, 64m) 6
Standard issue, worked hard defensively.

Kyle Sinckler (Furlong, 62m) 7
Grumpy, even after one small leap drew penalty which has Lions poised to make series history. Big tackle on Read.

Courtney Lawes (Jones, 59m) 6
Standard issue.

CJ Stander DNP

Rhys Webb DNP

Ben Te'o DNP

Jack Nowell 5
Five minute burst while Watson had a head check.
