WATCH: The crucial moment Liam Williams missed during Lions decider in Cape Town

Wales star Liam Williams made a mess of a two-on-one during Saturday’s British & Irish Lions series decider against the Springboks in Cape Town.

The Scarlets full back had fellow countryman Josh Adams outside him with just one defender standing between them and the try line, however Williams dummied and took the contact.

Had Williams given the pass, Adams would have had a clear run to the line from 30 metres out in the first half to potentially take the tourists into a 3-17 lead.

On the incident, former Lions fly half Ronan O’Gara said: “It probably came down to Liam Williams not hitting Josh Adams outside him to score. Those decisions cost you. In cup rugby, it’s imperative you take your points.”

Following full time, head coach Warren Gatland added: “A 2-on-1 with Liam Williams and Josh Adams, he should have given the pass probably. You get one or two chances at this level and you’ve got to make the most of them because you’ve got to be clinical when they come around.”

In the end it was the Boks who secured the Test series through a late penalty kick from veteran fly-half Morne Steyn and full match highlights are available below:
