Lion O’Brien hungry for more

Sean O’Brien admits he would love to go on another British & Irish Lions tour again after forming part of last summer’s victorious squad.

O’Brien started the decisive final Test of the 2013 tour, filling in for injured captain Sam Warburton in the back row.

The Lions won that match 41-16 to claim a historic 2-1 series victory over Australia – the Lions’ first series triumph in 16 years.

And after tasting victory on his first Lions tour, 27-year-old O’Brien admits he’s desperate for another go in 2017.

“There are still things I want to achieve, like any player you want to achieve as much as you can and do well in all competitions,” he said.

“I’d love to win a World Cup. And I’d love to win a Six Nations. And I’d love to win more European Cups and leagues. And go on the Lions tour again.

“It’s selfish in this game – when you get a taste of it you want more.

“It’s all obviously something that’s on my ‘to do’ list, but it’ll be on a lot of other players’ ‘to-do’ lists and that’s where the battle comes into it and it becomes exciting.”
