  • Jonathan Joseph says he never gave up hope of securing a place in the Lions squad

Tommy Seymour admits that the only way the British and Irish Lions will pull off a series win over New Zealand is for every player to go above and beyond this summer.

Best was part of the Ireland team that stunned the All Blacks 40-29 in Chicago in November, defeating the southern-hemisphere powerhouses for the first time and halting the world champions' record-breaking run of 18 consecutive tier-one victories. We've got to go out there with ambition - there's no point in sitting on our heels and hoping you're going to have a physical confrontation with them.

"We had that belief to beat them and a mentality to attack".

"You have to put pressure on them, getting in their faces, quick line speed, putting them under pressure".

"We've got to be willing to be physical with them; we've got to be willing to play as well. Maybe we will do it slightly differently to Chicago".

The Lions will continue to push for extra preparation time for future tours, however, given their first fixture on next month's tour to New Zealand falls just one week after the Aviva Premiership and Guinness PRO12 finals.

"They are world champions, the number one team in the world for a reason", he said. To beat them as a national side is hard, but to come together as a best of four nations will be a real challenge.

"They are beatable. Gats (Lions head coach Warren Gatland) said it from the off, he didn't want anyone on the plane who doesn't believe we can win".
