Thoughts turn to Lions tour after Six Nations win

After Wales' victory in their Six Nations title campaign thoughts are turning to selection for the Lions' tour of Australia.

The Wales contingent in the Lions could run into double figures. In a post-match press conference interim Head Coach, Rob Howley, joked that some of his players could have a busy summer.

As a play, coming into a championship on a Lions year, how important your performance is going to be. They're under the microscope throughout the championship. And they performed as you'd expect them to today, they turned up.

Probably pressure was on us a little bit more, and everyone was talking about England winning, and the points. But we just made sure we started well.

_And some of them might have a busy summer...
