Relive: The Second British and Irish Lions Test 2009 - Full Test

The British and Irish Lions' hopes of squaring the series in South Africa ended in heart-breaking fashion as replacement Springboks fly-half Morne Steyn landed a winning penalty with the last kick of a thrilling second Test in Pretoria.

Steyn's monumental kick from 53 metres ensured the world champions earned a measure of revenge for their 1997 defeat by the Lions, who led until the 74th minute before the video referee ruled Jaque Fourie had scored for the Boks in the right corner.
