When you look at the stats of the game, one would be forgiven for thinking Halfpenny kicked a string of easy goals as the Lions ran rampant, but that couldn't be farther from the truth.
A large portions of his kicks came from the touchlines, both left and right, and he sent everyone straight between the posts as if he had the ball on a string.
If he continues to kick in this vein, the Lions will be well on the road to victory.
Aside from his kicking, he was his usual solid self. He was imperious under the high ball and popped up across the back line.
With Rob Kearney struggling, Halfpenny looks set for the No. 15 Test shirt.
Flicking through Jamie Heaslip's Twitter, I saw he posted a picture alluding to a game of hide and seek he'd been playing. Congratulations on your success, Jamie.
You managed to spend close to four years in hiding because I haven't seen this version of Heaslip since the last Lions tour.
He showed glimpses in the closing few weeks of the season but this is the Heaslip that was among the best No. 8s in the world.
He's rampaging through defenders with ball in hand, popping up across the field in great positions and offloading in the tackle.
An in-form Heaslip gives the Lions incredible options in the back row.
In any other Lions tour his average scrummaging would've made him a liability, but the Australians seem to have copied their cousins in Super Rugby and given up on the scrum.
This plays into the Lions' hands in two ways. Firstly their hard-scrummaging pack will soften up the opposition forwards and then Vunipola can be unleashed off the bench to cause carnage.
He's not the fittest, but boy is he powerful. He is also surprisingly skillful, which makes him a great option to spring off the bench.
He won't beat Gareth Jenkins to the Test team but I can see him being used as an impact sub.
Exactly 100 players have appeared for the Lions between the debuts of Brian O'Driscoll and Manu Tuilagi, but that didn't stop them forming a formidable partnership on Wednesday night.
Many seem to be favouring more power in the centre but, for me, O'Driscoll has to start.
He has a fantastic rugby brain and brings real intelligence to a power-heavy back line. He runs fantastic lines off the big men, and though 34, he looks in fantastic shape and enjoying the Tour as if it was his first.
His ability to play off the big men and act as a distributor are unmatched in the Lions' back division. And he won't accept defeat. This is his legacy on the line. O'Driscoll for the 13 shirt.
The rest can argue over who starts inside him.
