British and Irish Lions skipper Sam Warburton admits he didn't know quite what to make of the 15-15 draw with New Zealand in Auckland as the Test series was tied.
Warburton told Sky Sports: "It is a difficult one, it has got to be a first. It is difficult as players, if you go through the pressure and the emotion of the week, it is all geared towards winning.
"But, I guess, it is better than losing. We didn't lose the series. To be honest, I am a bit speechless, I don't know what to make of that. I was ready to go into extra-time! My legs weren't, they are cramping up everywhere."
New Zealand captain Kieran Read, playing his 100th Test, echoed Warburton's thoughts following the draw.
"I feel pretty hollow, to be honest," Read said.
"When you walk away with a draw, it doesn't really mean much. I will probably look at it in the future with a bit more pride."
