All Blacks draw

Lions would've won with more preparation, says Spencer

The All Blacks and Lions played out a thrilling 15-15 draw in the third Test on Saturday to see their series finish locked at 1-1.

Spencer felt the tourists were capable of becoming just the second Lions team to win a series against the All Blacks, if they had more time in the lead-up.

"My honest opinion is yes," he told a news conference on Sunday.

"I think that preparation is extremely important. Gold medals are won on the training pitch, long before they are won on the rugby pitch."
