Best keen to get back to winning ways


Rory Best says he wants to get back to winning ways when he captains the British and Irish Lions against the Chiefs on Tuesday.

Ireland hooker Best's last experience of captaining the British and Irish Lions was a 14-12 defeat to the Brumbies in Australia in 2013, the tourists' first defeat of the tour and their first defeat to a provincial side since 1997.

"The last time I captained the Lions didn't go perfectly for us, but personally I will be looking to set that record straight on Tuesday,' the 34-year-old said.

"We always want that little bit more, and we want the win on Tuesday night and ultimately we want to win the Test series."

Leinster centre Robbie Henshaw also starts in Hamilton, the Lions' final warm-up game before the first Test against New Zealand on Saturday.

Henshaw's selection against the Chiefs suggests that he will not start against the All Blacks, but the 24-year-old says it is a "privilege" to simply be part of the Lions' touring party. 

"It is a privilege to play here, and a privilege to play against such quality opposition out here, so I think getting selected to  is great and I am really looking forward to playing against the Chiefs," he said.

"It is great to be here and an honour to be playing in  red again."
