“Jeanie, this is really going to be something” – First Test buzz building for BO’D

The inspirational Irishman caught up with former Wallaby scrumhalf George Gregan in Sydney.

BRIAN O’DRISCOLL WILL miss out on Tuesday’s warm-up match with the ACT Brumbies but is expected to start at inside centre for the Lions’ First Test with Australia on Saturday.

Ireland’s record try-scorer caught up with former wallaby scrumhalf George Gregan in Sydney to talk about the tour so far, the hordes of Lions’ fans enveloping Australia and the dream of capturing a first series win.

Jason Robinson, who starred alongside O’Driscoll in the last Lions tour Down Under [2001], also gives his views on the upcoming Test Series and his view that Sam Warburton will start as captain in Saturday’s match. Check out Lions Weekly here:
