Jonny Wilkinson has admitted that he would jump at the chance to represent the British and Irish Lions on their tour of Australia next summer.
The former England fly-half, who retired from the international scene last year, said that he would not turn down the opportunity if it were offered.
"There's no way I could say no," BBC Sport quotes Wilkinson as saying. "In terms of what that represents, everything about it, it's enormous. Such a fabulous thing.
"The joy is the fact it doesn't have to come with [still playing] international rugby. It doesn't matter where you come from. You have got six weeks, get your boots on and get into it."
Wilkinson added: "All I can do is play and see if I fit into those plans. If I don't, I'll make the best of what I've got which, let's face it, is good enough."
Wilkinson is currently playing his rugby with Toulon in France.
