Tom Croft: Focused on Saturday's final
Leicester flanker Tom Croft insists he will put all thoughts of the British and Irish Lions to the back of his mind - until Sunday at least.
Croft is one of six Tigers players that will head to Hong Kong and Australia with the Lions.
However before the England back-rower can get too excited, he has the small matter of the Aviva Premiership final clash against Northampton at Twickenham to negotiate.
Tom Croft's among the players who will link up with the Lions after this weekend's Premiership final at Twickenham.
And despite the prospect of three mouth-watering Tests against Australia, Croft is focused solely on putting one over East Midlands rivals Northampton.
"We met up (with the Lions) a week ago on Monday said hello, had a few meetings, tried on a bit of kit and things like that then it was straight back to Leicester training," Croft told Sky Sports.
"This is an exciting time for the club and it is what the boys play for throughout the year.
"It is not about 'oh I wish I was with the Lions now' it is about finishing off the job here, hopefully picking up the trophy and then you can flick the switch on Sunday and meet up with the Lions and fly off to Australia."
