Leigh Halfpenny credited kicking coach Neil Jenkins for his faultless display with the boot against Western Force.

The Wales full-back was on target with all 11 of his attempts at goal in Perth as the British and Irish Lions cruised to a comprehensive 69-17 victory.

"I'm pretty pleased with that," said Halfpenny. "'I've been continuing with the work I do day-in day-out, going through my routine.

"Jenks has given me a couple of pointers and reminds me of what I'm good at, such as striking the ball. I was pretty pleased with how I struck it today.

"It doesn't get much better than to have Neil Jenkins as a coach. He is a legend of the game and was the world's top points scorer at one stage. I can't think of anyone better to be bringing on the kicking tee and giving me pointers.

"The boys set the bar against the Barbarians and for us, it was about taking it to the next level. I think we did that. Whenever we had opportunities we were clinical."
