Tries from Joost van der Westhuizen, Percy Montgomery and Andre Joubert ought to have given the Springboks the match but they could not convert their tries nor land any penalties and found themselves level at 15-15 with the Lions relying heavily on Neil Jenkins' boot.
The NZRU, having imposed a two-Test ban on players who had made the rebel-tour of South Africa with the Cavaliers, fielded an experimental side under the captaincy of David Kirk. Mike Brewer, who was also on debut, scored the All Blacks' try.
The Lions' three tries came from David Irwin, Roger Baird and Ian Paxton but it was not enough as the tourists were narrowly beaten.
