Elliot Daly’s late attempt at a 57-metre match-winning penalty fell just short as the British and Irish Lions lost narrowly to the Highlanders.
Second-half tries from returning captain Sam Warburton and Tommy Seymour looked to have put the Lions in control, before the hosts responded.
Owen Farrell dragged a Lions penalty wide before Marty Banks landed what proved the decisive kick in Dunedin.
It was a second loss in four games for Warren Gatland’s side in New Zealand.
Waisake Naholo’s try had given the hosts a first-half lead, before Jonathan Joseph replied with a converted score.
But Liam Coltman drove over for the Highlanders and Lima Sopoaga added his second penalty after the break to set up the nervy finish.
