Leon Pryce helped St Helens win a hat-trick of trophies this season.
Now the versatile 25-year-old is attempting to help Great Britain claim the Gillette Tri-Nations Series for the first time.
The former Bradford Bulls player took time out from his busy schedule to tell us about life on tour, what he thinks of Australia and how the Lions are going to stop Jamie Lyon.
THE UPS AND DOWNS OF TOURING
It's been difficult. It's hard to come away from your family for such a long time. You just try and fill your time up and try not to think about missing your wife and your kids.
I've made a few new friendships now and we're coming together as a team, especially being down here under so much scrutiny.
We've had a laugh, but we haven't had too much time to have a drink. I think really you relax when you have had a
couple of beers. You see a side to people you hadn't seen before.
Hopefully we can have a beer after a nice win this weekend.
AUSTRALIA - THE COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE
It's not all it's made out to be. All the Aussies come over and say how good it is, but I'd much rather be back in Bradford.
I'd rather be on Blackpool beach than Bondi beach. They can keep the country to themselves.
Playing on the wing I'm just as confident as I was playing at stand-off
I'd be tempted to come and play here because it's the best competition, but I think we have seen a different side to the way people are. I'm happy with my life back home, I've nothing to prove down here.
I don't think they have much respect for us at all, as people as well as players. I don't think they really like the English.
I never really understood it till we got down here. We don't really care, but they don't seem to be keen on us.
They keep going on about Pommies this and Pommies that, but we just get on with it.
We're not really bothered. We're not really fazed by what they say. If you get into that child's play, that's what they really enjoy.
You see that with the Willie Mason-David Kidwell thing, they love it. But if you don't give them much to talk about, that frustrates them, so we'd rather not.
THE FRUSTRATION OF LOSING TO NEW ZEALAND
If New Zealand had been brilliant and had out-played us then it wouldn't have been so frustrating.
But because we only had ourselves to blame, that is the most frustrating thing.
We could have won that game very easily.
THE BEST WAY TO STOP JAMIE LYON
The secret is not to be drawn into him, if you can help it.
If you are a winger don't come in on him, because he'll do the little flick pass. If you are a centre then try not to let him get on your outside.
Other than that, you have got to try and deal with the immediate when he gets the ball.
He's a good player and good players always come up with something in the game. He'll always do something good, but you have to try to restrict it as much as possible.
HIS FORM AND GB'S CHANCES OF BEATING AUSTRALIA
As a player now I'm probably at my most confident. Playing on the wing I'm just as confident as I was playing at stand-off all year for Saints.
I had a bit to prove to myself that I could play at my best against the best, not just be out there taking part.
Against Australia it's a bigger challenge. Not so much physically because the Kiwis are physical, but mentally.
They play for a full 80 minutes - you can't switch off against the Australians because they could burn you on every single play.
The team have to prepare right this week and prepare well.
