13th min TRY NEW ZEALAND to Joseph Manu out wide, and it is the direct result of Great Britain turning possession over on their own goal line. Good attempt from Whitehead to stop Manu, but he just reached out and scored. No conversion.

It’s madness. Why not put Lomax to the wing, Widdop to fullback and Williams or Austin to halves? This was always going to happen.

16th min Great Britain show some spark in attack, but the final pass, maybe from Whitehead, was ruled forward.

Big hit from Tapine on Austin... but he bounces away and makes good post contact metres.

25th min PENALTY NEW ZEALAND to Jamayne Isaako from in front. Ruck infringement from James Graham. Seven penalties already.

Hodgson needs to stop giving his out of sorts halves the ball and dictate through the ruck. Hastings is absolute crap, and Widdop is out of form.

30th min PENALTY GOAL NEW ZEALAND to Jamayne Isaako.

Whitehead penalised for a strip, the international rule is the "old" rule, with Hodgson involved earlier in the tackle as well.

34th min TRY NEW ZEALAND to Shaun Johnson. He runs and steps and goes right through. The video referee rules no obstruction, there was a hint of one. Converted Isaako from close to the posts. This is now shaping as a disastrous tour for the Lions.

Probably a no try in the NRL for stopping in the defensive line.

Why is Lewis Brown on TV?

Wayne Bennett’s pig headedness has turned this Lions campaign into a damp squib.

This gb team lacks any threat at all. As it has all tour. That williams fellows game seemed to have some offensive capabilities to it. I wonder if gb didnt have a boring coach they might have had more success

46th min TRY NEW ZEALAND to Ken Maumalo, great pass from Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad. Only his hand is in the field of play when it is grounded. The rest of him is suspended in mid air out side the field. Isaako cannot convert from the sideline.

Good for us he has got the chance to develop at center. Gives us options if one goes down during the game.

50th min TRY GREAT BRITAIN to Josh Hodgson! Very, very late offload from Josh Jones, but the Lions finally have a try! Widdop converts

55th min John Bateman on report, high tackle. If there's a suspension, let's hope it is one week, next week! These blokes look like they need a rest.

That was just dreadful from James Graham. Jackson Hastings is just down right awful. And this bloke wins the best player award in Super League.

Ive been questioning grahams ability to perform at club level for a while. Seeing him in an international is absurd

I really can't believe people on here were telling me Widdop is an elite half two weeks ago lol.

What did Williams do not to be selected...

66th min TRY GREAT BRITAIN to John Bateman, chasing the Widdop kick. He's on side... the issue is whether he grounds it. It's a try on field... but the last angles shows he doesn't touch the ball! NO TRY! Kiwis forced into a line drop out.

He'd be a better halfback than Hastings.

Clear strip on Tarps there.

I will downgrade Jackson Hastings' rating from 'trash' to 'steaming pile of trash'.

67th min Error Joe Tapine in his own red zone. Britain have been terrible in attack. Josh Hodgson is the Lions' best player by a long way... and Wayne Bennett's plan is to take him off towards the end of the game! They haven't looked like getting through, with a mountain of possession and territory.
