Neil Jenkins has been appointed assistant manager of the British and Irish Lions for the summer tour of Australia.
The former Wales fly-half, who was part of the coaching set-up for the tour of South Africa in 2009, has admitted his delight at the appointment.
"As a player I was lucky enough to tour Australia with the Lions in 2001, it is a great country and they are one of the top teams in world rugby," he said in a statement.
"Like 1997 it was a terrific series but unfortunately we lost 2-1. I have clear ideas of what I would like to contribute and I cannot wait to get out onto the training pitch and get started."
The squad for the summer tour will be named next Tuesday.
