Best thrilled by late Lions call-up

Ulster and Ireland hooker Rory Best is delighted by his late call-up to the Lions squad but speaks of his sympathy for Dylan Hartley.

England hooker Hartley has been ruled out of the tour after being handed an 11-week suspension following his sending off in Saturday's Premiership final.

Despite Best's late call-up, Lions coach Warren Gatland has insisted that the Ireland hooker will be in contention for a Test place in the series.
