Warburton determined Lions will win first series in 16 years

The British and Irish Lions rugby captain Sam Warburton says the desire to achieve something no Lions team has done for 16 years will drive his side to success in the three-test battle against the Australia.

The Lions haven't won a series since Martin Johnson's side beat South Africa in 1997.

Since then the Lions have won two, drawn one and lost seven of their Test matches and were beaten 2-1 by the Wallabies 12 years ago.

But Warburton believes the desire is there to make history.
