Lions and Australia 'closer than 2001'

Brian O'Driscoll says the the gap between the British and Irish Lions and Australia is closer than in 2001.

That year saw Australia claim their first ever series win over the Lions with a thrilling victory in the deciding third Test at Sydney's Stadium Australia.

This series will also be decided in Saturday's crucial third and final Test after the hosts hit back to win a desperately tense second Test 16-15 in Melbourne.
