Video: Sexton and Faletau combine for a key turnover

The Lions put in a fine display against the Crusaders on Saturday to claim a 12-3 win in Christchurch and end the Super Rugby leaders' unbeaten start to the season.

Defensively the Lions were superb in restricting the Crusaders to a single Richie Mo’unga penalty, and that intensity was on show throughout.

With ten minutes to go, the Lions led by nine points and their hosts knew that they needed to score quickly to have a chance of winning.

Instead it was the Lions who stepped up with this turnover as Taulupe Faletau and Johnny Sexton combined.

Their work in defence to hold the ball-carrier up resulted in a crucial turnover as the Lions saw out the game in style.
