George North confident ahead of first Lions Test against Australia

Wales wing George North says the British and Irish Lions go into Saturday's first Test against Australia full of confidence despite the midweek defeat against the ACT Brumbies.

North will make his Lions Test debut at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium in a side including eight Welshmen and captained by Sam Warburton.

The selection of eight Welshman is one short of the record of nine selected for Tests 1971 and 1977.
