Brian O'Driscoll was content with the British and Lions' performance against Western Force but says there is plenty of room for improvement.

Captaining the side in the absence of Sam Warburton, O'Driscoll scored two of the tourists' nine tries in the 69-17 win in Perth as they easily overcame an understrength Force outfit.

"It's always nice to get on the end of good moves," said the Ireland centre.

"I've George (North) and Manu (Tuilagi) to thank for some nice offloads.

"We're relatively pleased with the performance. There's plenty to work on, particularly in defence, but we scored some good tries."

O'Driscoll said the starting 15 were determined to produce a positive performance following the win over the Barbarians last weekend.

"We have to continue building," he said. "The boys set a good standard in Hong Kong and we need to keep moving it forward because we know what tests lay ahead for us with the Wallabies.

"There were some great aspects to the game but plenty to work on."
