Warren Gatland will hope last week's team can replicate their second Test performance after naming an unchanged team to play the All Blacks in the series decider in Auckland on Saturday.

Despite whispers around the fitness of fullback Liam Williams who's enjoyed a fruitful tour of New Zealand, as well as doubts around the selection of Mako Vunipola, Gatland has refused to change it up - putting his faith in the group that got the job done in Wellington last week.

It's the first time since their tour of New Zealand in 1993, that the Lions have kept the same team for consecutive Tests.
