A try from fly-half Jonathan Sexton - and another Leigh Halfpenny conversion - put the Lions clear again heading into the final quarter.

Sexton touched down after receiving the final pass from Halfpenny in a slick Lions move in the left corner.

Australia had closed the gap to just three points early in the second half through two Christian Leali'ifano penalties.

Australian fly-half James O'Connor finished a jinking run with a try in the very last play of the first half, to narrow the scoreline to 19-10.

The Lions lead at the break thanks to Alex Corbisiero's early try, and 14 points from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny.

Australia could have been ahead, but turned down five opportunities to kick penalties for goal in the first period.

Halfpenny kicked another nerveless three points, after the Lions earned a further penalty at the scrum.

When the Australian forwards couldn't live with the Lions at scrum time yet again, prop Ben Alexander was sent to the sin bin.

Halfpenny again made no mistake, to extend the Lions' lead to 19-3 after 26 minutes.

There is plenty of local support at Halfpenny's old club, Gorseinon RFC.
