The Australian's error let Lions legend Ieuan Evans in for a try that set up a famous 19-18 win that also saw the tourists clinch the series glory. Finlay Calder's men were level at 9-9 at half-time thanks largely to the boot of fullback Gavin Hastings who kept his side in the match before Campese's high-profile blunder.
He went on to play for the British & Irish Lions in 2005 but was forced to retire a year later with a neck injury for which he received £500,000 compensation. Thompson made a sensational return to action in 2007 with Top 14 side Brive and earned an international recall against Argentina in 2009. However, with the resumption of his playing career he had to repay all of his compensation pay-out.
