Clockwatch: NZ 48-18 Lions
All the action from the second Test between the Lions and the All Blacks in Wellington.

FULL TIME - New Zealand 48-18 Lions

79 min: Horgan charges a metre from the New Zealand try-line. He appears to land the ball but referee Andrew Cole does not give the try.

76 min: TRY New Zealand 48-18 Lions Carter's chip and charge is stopped a metre short of the try-line. The New Zealand pack drive forward. McCaw goes over to further dishearten the Lions. Carter converts again.

69 min: TRY New Zealand 41-18 Lions New Zealand have the scrum. The move crosses the field to McDonald who finds Carter. The prolific number 10 dances past a couple of weak challenges to score again. He converts his own try.

65 min: TRY New Zealand 34-18 Lions Easterby scores in the left-hand corner despite two heavy tackles. Jones misses with the conversion. Can the Lions produce a miracle?

63 min: Lions are battling hard 15 metres from the New Zealand try-line. But there seems no way past the New Zealand defence.

58 min: PENALTY New Zealand 34-13 Lions Wilkinson has to come off and is replaced by Stephen Jones. Carter converts the penalty.

57 min: Carter kicks into touch - to put the Lions under more pressure. Wilkinson is down again after attempting to tackle Carter. Jones holds on to the ball after the tackle and gives away the penalty.

54 min: Lions have the scrum, 20 metres from their own try-line.

53 min: White gives away a penalty after driving straight for the prop.

49 min: White is luck to stay on after appearing stamping to stamp on Kelleher's arm in the ruck. Lions win a penalty and Wilkinson kicks to touch.

47 min: The Lions win another penalty for the collapse of the maul. Wilkinson goes for the corner. Williams is dumped twice after two heavy tackles. There seems no way past the New Zealand defence after being pushed back 10 metres.

43 min: TRY New Zealand 31-13 Lions Carter produces one moment of brilliance. He picks up the ball from So'oialo following a great Umaga offload. Carter hugs the right-hand touchline, kicks past Lewsey and touches down. It all seems too easy for the All Blacks. Carter converts.

40 min: PENALTY New Zealand 24-13 Lions Carter kicks from the re-start. Wilkinson comes in to tackle Umaga and appears to damage his shoulder. The Newcastle star stays on. White is given offside and the All Blacks win a penalty. Carter extends New Zealand's lead.


38 min: McDonald comes on for Mauger and takes the full-back position.

37 min: The Lions have a line-out on their own 22. Peel kicks to safety.

32 min: TRY New Zealand 21-13 Lions The reason why Joe Rokocoko was left out of the New Zealand squad is partly answered by Sivivatu who picks up the ball after a crossfield move started by Mauger from the scrum. He leaves two tackles behind him on the left, to touch down. Carter misses the conversion.

31 min: Kelleher leaves White for dead. It needs a last-ditch tackle from Thomas to save a almost certain try. New Zealand have the scrum from five yards out.

29 min: PENALTY New Zealand 16-13 Lions Lions win another penalty. Wilkinson, after missing a drop-goal, does not miss again from 40 metres out.

27 min: PENALTY New Zealand 16-10 Lions Indiscipline from O'Connell in the tackle costs the Lions. Carter kicks the penalty to re-establish their advantage.

25 min: PENALTY New Zealand 13-10 Lions Lions win the penalty after Mauger comes through the side. Wilkinson successfully kicks the penalty to reduce the deficit having taken the lead earlier.

23 min: Moody and Collins get involved in handbags in the middle of the pitch. Lions win the penalty and kicks to touch for a line-out.

19 min: Carter puts the Lions under more pressure with a great crossfield kick. It goes out for a line-out, five metres from their try-line. Lions manage to clear and then win a penalty.

17 min: TRY New Zealand 13-7 Lions Thomas loses the ball 20 metres from the New Zealand try-line. Carter breaks, jinks past a couple of tackles then finds the supporting, and recently under-fire, Umaga, who touches down for the All Blacks. Carter converts.

15 min: PENALTY New Zealand 6-7 Lions Thompson is caught offside. Carter opts to go for three points, despite the All Blacks being just 15 metres out.

12 min: Peel loses the ball. New Zealand win the scrum, 10 metres from the try-line. Lions defence stands firm, with Henson taking out Gear as the winger was approaching the try-line.

10 min: Thompson steals the ball from a New Zealand line-out - what a difference a week makes.

8 min: PENALTY New Zealand 3-7 Lions Carter reduces the deficit with a penalty kick from 40 metres out.

5 min: Lions win a penalty, but Wilkinson's kick hits the post. Robinson, quick as lighting, gets to the ball first. The ball goes out for a All Blacks line-out.

1 min: TRY New Zealand 0-7 Lions Sensational scenes. Captain Thomas takes advantage of atrocious defending from New Zealand. He picks up the ball from Wilkinson and plants the ball under the posts from 12 metres out. Wilkinson kicks the conversion.

1 min: Wilkinson gets the game underway.

0808 BST: The national anthems have been sung. The Lions are at 5-1 with some bookmakers to win the match.

0802 BST: No last minute surprises in the Lions line-up. Welsh wonderboy Gavin Henson is included at centre, after being left out of the first Test.

0800 BST: The weather is warm and dry - a far cry from the conditions for the first Test in Christchurch. But can the Lions change their own fortunes, following their opening defeat?

0752 BST: Prince William is in the stadium. On Friday, he sampled the intensity of a Lions training session.

0750 BST: The lucky fans who have got tickets for the second Lions Test against New Zealand begin to take to their seats. The venue holds 34,500 and the match is a sell-out.
