Steve Hansen, the All Blacks head coach, has called on World Rugby to simply the laws of game in the wake of the referee Romain Poite's controversial decision to downgrade a penalty decision which denied his side the chance to win the Test series against the British and Irish Lions.
And Hansen felt similarly disappointed with the outcome after the fancied All Blacks came up some way short in their bid to whitewash the Lions.
They nearly got off the hook for that profligacy, going ahead 15-12 in the 68th minute through the boot of Beauden Barrett, until Lions playmaker Owen Farrell knocked over his fifth three-pointer with two minutes left.
Hansen was asked, given the feeling of frustration among players from both teams that the three-test series had ended without a clear victor, whether he would support extra time in future series.
"It's a bit of a hollow feeling, I guess, a draw", Read said.
Gatland described Warburton's questioning of Poite as "smart and astute", while the skipper said his chances of getting the referee's agreement was helped by not having questioned many earlier rulings.
"We would have been devastated to have lost the game from that kick-off".
"So this time they used the video and then had a pow-wow, and what would have been good is just play on and we would have scored under the posts; that would have been okay".
"I want to play both positions or wherever the coach wants me to play". "The boys have got on, worked hard", Hansen said.
"It was a shot to nothing, they'd awarded the penalty. Again, it is what it is, it's happened and we can't change that".
"We know how much they like to slow it down and make it an arm-wrestle, especially at set piece time", Barrett said.
"There's too many avenues that you can go down, but that's not the ref's fault, that's the rulebook".
'As little kids we're taught to take the good with the bad and we've got to do that. "I'm not going to talk about it; the ref made his decision and we're going to live with it". "Go back to the World Cup and the same thing happened where Scotland missed out [on a semi-final] because they didn't use the video", he said.
'His initial instincts were that it was a penalty then he spoke to his team and one of them suggested it was accidental.
