British and Irish Lions defence coach Andy Farrell describes Saturday's Test-series decider against Australia as the "biggest game" of their lives.

British and Irish Lions defence coach Andy Farrell has described next weekend's series decider against Australia as the biggest game of their lives.

The tourists won the opening Test two weeks ago, but the Wallabies got their revenge with a narrow victory in Melbourne on Saturday.

The two sides will now meet in Sydney on July 6 with the three-Test series at stake.

"We all realise it's the biggest game of our lives and we'll see what comes of it," Farrell told reporters.

"I wouldn't say Australia are in the driving seat. I'd say they're very pleased - it was a do or die situation for them and they rose to the challenge."

The Lions are bidding to claim their first tour triumph since 1997.
