Sam Warburton says being made British and Irish Lions captain has been "the best three weeks of my career", and admits he is "desperate" to make his debut.

The Welsh flanker missed the first two tour games but has recovered from a knee injury to lead the side against the Queensland Reds on Saturday.

Team-mate Alex Cuthbert believes captaining the Lions will be a "proud moment" for Warburton, and feels he will put in "one hell of a performance".
