The New Zealand shearing team has ended a tour of Britain with honours-even after completing its eighth Test.

James Fagan of Te Kuiti and John Kirkpatrick of Napier finished with a one-point win at the final Test in Wales during the weekend.

The result levelled the Welsh leg of the tour as well as the full series, after a 2-0 loss in Scotland and a 2-0 win over England.
