VIDEO: Faletau’s try-saver against the NZ Provincial Barbarians!

The British & Irish Lions got off to a winning start on the 2017 Tour to New Zealand with a 13-7 win over the New Zealand Barbarians.

The Lions came through to win their opening match 7-13 thanks to a try by Anthony Watson and two penalties.

The home side led 7-3 at the break, but one of the standout moments came when Taulupe Faletau showed his defensive prowess.

Luteru Laulala made an initial break after a high kick, with Stuart Hogg doing well to tackle him as he bore down on the line.

The full back found centre Kaveinga Finau in support and he looked set to score only for Faletau to get back.

It wasn’t just about pace from the No 8, he also needed incredible power when he got back to bring down Finau and then hold him up over the line.
