Above is a short piece from what was a fascinating interview with Man of the Match Wilkinson after the game. Here he is talking about the final, but when asked about the Lions, he was as humble as ever.
"The Lions is difficult for me because it's not at all that I wouldn't consider it, it would be fabulous," he told Sky Sports. "It's up there with the most amazing experiences you can get in rugby.
"But I watch guys like Owen Farrell, Toby Flood, Dan Biggar and Jonathan Sexton and it is them who are driving rugby forward. Perhaps they should be the ones driving this tour forward as well.
"I'm digging my fingernails in and hanging on really and watching these guys is what it’s all about.
When asked what he said to Farrell on the floor, he explained: "I said, 'Listen mate, that’s a bit lucky. I apologise for that one.' He smashed me as well."
