Australia's Deans expects special tour

Australia coach Robbie Deans admits his nation's players are already looking ahead to the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour because facing the touring side is such a special occasion.

Deans admits that he will soon have to start planning on hosting the Lions and believes playing them is similar to competing at a World Cup.

The Lions will play three Tests - in Brisbane on 22 June, Melbourne (29 June) and Sydney (6 July).
