In the final moments before kick-off at Eden Park on Saturday, Sam Warburton found himself in reflective mood. On previous Lions tours, former captains have used such defining moments to delivering passionate rallying calls to their team-mates, urging them to lay their bodies on the line for the famous red jersey. Warburton instead turned to words of inspiration from four-times gold medal sprinter Michael Johnson, who once said: “Pressure is just the shadow of great opportunity”.
Sam Warburton, the British and Irish Lions captain, has called for mechanisms to be put in place to ensure there is always outright winner of future tours to avoid a repeat of the drawn series against the All Blacks. Warburton revealed that he expected and was preparing for extra time to decide the third and final Test against the All Blacks after both sides were locked at 15-15 in one of the most frantic climaxes in the tourists’ history.
Auckland: The Lions players came into the post-match press conference sporting their burgundy velvet blazers and wondering just what on earth to make of the 15-15 draw that ensured that the Test series against the All Blacks ended in a tie for only the second time in the tourists’ 129-year history. Maro Itoje, who emerged as the cult figure of the tour with the supporters, was first up.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
