O'Driscoll tipped to lead Lions in decider

6:10 am on 2 July 2013

The veteran Irish centre Brian O'Driscoll looks likely to lead the British and Irish Lions in their deciding test against the Wallabies in Sydney on Saturday night.

The tour captain Sam Warburton has been ruled out of the third test after suffering a significant hamstring tear in Melbourne last Saturday night, and the 24 year old flanker says he's incredibly disappointed about missing out on such a big match.

Apart from Warburton, the Lions lost a former tour skipper, lock Paul O'Connell with a broken arm from the first test.
