It monsooned in Whangarei, sleeted in Dunedin, drizzled in Rotorua, bucketed in Wellington, lashed across Auckland and yet it proved impossible to pour cold water on the Lions tour, or finish off a team that refused to go under. National nervousness climbed after Lions wins over the Crusaders and the New Zealand Maori, to extreme edginess going into the decider, then nuclear perplexity after French referee Romain Poite changed his mind at Eden Park.
OPINION: And so the clown has had the last laugh, the rugby pit pony has deadheated with the thoroughbred, the "worst" Lions team to tour New Zealand has turned out to be the second best, to end a "suicidal" tour not just alive, but kicking goals from everywhere. In 80 drama-filled minutes back-to-back world champion All Blacks allowed a Lions team that had been together just six weeks to make the Great Escape, even digging the tunnels for them to scurry through.
From nervous to dejected, All Blacks fullback Jordie Barrett went through a broad sweep of emotions on the day of his test debut, not that you'd know from how he played. Barrett, 20, was handed the 15 jersey for the series decider, opening his test career in a white-hot atmosphere at Eden Park against a British and Irish Lions squad hell bent on ending 46 years of outs.
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".
