WATCH: Everyone is talking about this incredible Taulupe Faletau try-saving tackle

It was a lacklustre first-half performance from the British and Irish Lions but we need to talk about one moment of sheer brilliance from Taulupe Faletau.

Gatland's Lions are right up against it in their opening match against the Provincial Barbarians - a game the Lions were expected to win at a canter - and it could have been worse if it were not for Faletau.

Luteru Laulala broke from midfield and offloaded to Inga Finau who had a free run to score the game's opening try but Faletau somehow managed to make up the yards to make an incredible tackle.

Hats off to the Welshman, who was praised to the hilt on Twitter for his efforts.
