Murray 'excited' by Farrell half-back partnership

Conor Murray says the chance to partner Owen Farrell at half-back in the British and Irish Lions' contest on Saturday is "really exciting for me".

Johnny Sexton has been Murray's regular partner for both Ireland and the Lions but Farrell will start at fly-half against in-form Super Rugby outfit Crusaders on Saturday.

"The challenge now is to get to know Owen a little bit more," said Murray.
