British and Irish Lions lead at the break

The British and Irish Lions took a narrow 13-12 lead into the second half of their opening Test against Australia at Suncorp Stadium

George North ran in a stunning solo try while Leigh Halfpenny added the rest of the Lions points.

For Australia, debutant Israel Folau crossed twice in a breathless 40 minutes that was marred by concussions to Christian Leali'ifano and Berrick Barnes.
