Tipuric 'pinches himself' over Lions call-up

Ospreys and Wales flanker Justin Tipuric says making his British and Irish Lions debut against the Barbarians will be "special."

Tipuric is one of nine Welshmen starting against the Baa-Baas in Hong Kong on Saturday, a warm-up ahead of the tour of Australia.

The Lions' last Test series win in Australia was in 1989, and that team included former Wales scrum-half Robert Jones who also hails from Tipuric's home village of Trebanos in the Swansea Valley.
