OPINION: Falkland Islands aside, this had to be the biggest British invasion since The Beatles rocked and rolled up the US pop charts. At Eden Park guitars were not evident, but there was red to the left of us, red to the right of us, waiting on their Lions to ride into the valley of rugby death, venturing where no test side had beaten the All Blacks in 23 years.
Don't fall asleep when All Blacks halfback Aaron Smith is around. Smith is as fast on his maths as he is at clearing the ball, which saw him set alight the first All Blacks with a try from an audacious quick tap. Metres from the line in the 18th minute and the scoreline 3-0, Smith swiftly tapped and spun a penalty when three points was all but certain. In a flash hooker Codie Taylor was outside Lions left wing Elliot Daly and over in at the corner, snapping up an Israel Dagg pass off his bootlaces.
Excitement of beating the British and Irish Lions first up has been tempered by injuries to backs Ben Smith and Ryan Crotty. All Blacks vice-captain Ben Smith was forced to leave the field with another bout of concussion, his third this season. Centre Ryan Crotty has injured a hamstring, with the race on to get the steady midfield hand back by the third test, in two weeks' time. Coach Steve Hansen spoke briefly on both injuries after the game.
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".
