Gatland confident of Lions success

British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland says his team are leaving to face Australia "with the belief and confidence they will come back with a series victory".

Gatland also says the suspended Dylan Hartley made an "unfortunate error" after becoming the first player to be sent off in a Premiership final, and stresses the importance of his squad maintaining their discipline over the course of the tour.

The Lions' first match is on Saturday 1 June against the Barbarians in Hong Kong, and their tour culminates with the third Test in Sydney on 6 July.
