Manu Tuilagi: Centre would play anywhere for the Lions
Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi has echoed Brian O'Driscoll's sentiment that he would play in any position in order to line up in the British and Irish Lions Test team.
Tuilagi and O'Driscoll are two of four centres to have been selected for the tour of Australia, with Wales duo Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies also in the 37-man party.
"I'd play back row if I had to! Just being with the Lions is a huge honour. If you get the opportunity to play anywhere you don't turn it down," said the England international.
"The talent we have in the squad is massive. I came in on Sunday and watched training. It looked really sharp and that's the level we have to be at
"We'll have to be on our game the whole time to get a place in the team. It will be hard and a massive challenge."
Tuilagi was one of the 16 late arrivals into the Lions camp due to his involvement in Leicester's victory over Northampton in the Aviva Premiership final on Saturday.
"The squad's been in camp for two weeks so those of us who came down on Sunday have been getting up to speed," he added.
"We had a sit down with Owen Farrell and Jamie Roberts who told us what we need to know.
"For the boys who have just come down we need to be ready for the first game which we are available for."
