A lot of people harshly blaming one Lion after New Zealand blitz
It wasn't the best 40 minutes of Owen Farrell's rugby career.
The Saracens and England star missed a couple of tackles, kicked out on the full when there wasn't a whole lot of pressure on him and threw an intercepted pass.
He did score two penalties though so that was a redeeming factor but, overall, was a half to forget and Farrell and culminated in missing a crucial tackle in the lead up to Jordie Barrett's try.
In the deciding Test match, Farrell has not performed at the levels expected of him and wasn't short of critics.
His four successful penalties, including one from 48 metres that levelled the match at 15-15, were his saving grace but he will not be happy with his 80 minutes as a whole, which included five missed tackles.

Right now I love Owen Farrell. In six minutes time I can go back to hating him. What a sport rugby is.
