British & Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton has insisted that his side can still win their Test series against Australia despite Saturday's loss in Melbourne.

The tourists were edged out 16-15 at the Etihad Stadium as the Wallabies levelled the three-game series 1-1.

The two teams will now play a deciding Test match in Sydney next weekend.

"We're going through what Australia went through last week," Warburton told Sky Sports News. "They boys will realise we've still got a Test series up for grabs.

"There's some good stuff in there. We're definitely capable of winning the Test series. It's going to be won by a whisker next week and I hope it's us."

The Lions' last series win came back in 1997 when they travelled to South Africa.
