"Its great to have been named as a Lion but I've been telling everyone that I won't really be a member of the Lions club until I've played a game for them in New Zealand.
"It was great to meet up with the rest of the tour party earlier in the week, but I have tried to keep my mind off the tour.
"I know it sounds like a terrible sporting cliché, but professional players have to take one game at a time and my focus is only on Sunday's game.
"We all love to play in the big occasions and we all play to win. There will be no question of me, or any other of the Lions' players at Leicester, giving anything less than 100 per cent.
"Leicester against Toulouse is a fantastic tie. We are a big occasion team and you don't get many bigger occasions than this."
