Sam Warburton has revealed that he would be keen on captaining the British and Irish Lions on next year's tour of Australia.

The Wales skipper is considered as one of the favourites to lead Warren Gatland's side in the southern hemisphere.

"Every British player if they're honest about it would have it in the back of their mind, but the priority now is playing the autumn series and playing well for your club," the Cardiff Blues flanker told Sky Sports News.

"But I don't think any player in British rugby would turn it down because captaining the Lions is the pinnacle of a players' career."

The Lions will play 10 matches, including three Tests against the Wallabies, during their six-week tour.
