Sean Cronin says he has more pressing matters than hoping to impress British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland.
The Leinster hooker is fresh from a serious hamstring injury, he made a comeback in the province's 20-18 Guinness Pro 12 win over Ospreys last week.
His former team mate Luke Fitzgerald tipped him as a bolter for the tour, telling the Irish Independent: "I just think he's something extra to have on the bench.
"It would be a mistake not to consider him at the very least.
"He's so dynamic; He has 50 caps for Ireland. He's done it at the highest level and he's done well against New Zealand a few times as well.
"I think he'd be a great guy to bring on the tour."
Cronin admits he is honoured to be even considered for the squad, his only focus right now is on getting into the Leinster team:
“I’d be flattered and chuffed if they were even thinking of me or had me in their conversations.
“I’ve missed so much rugby my focus is getting into the Leinster squad at the moment it’s so tough.
“You got quality hookers down there in my position; I’d be flattered and chuffed to bits if I was just mentioned in those conversations that they’re having
“I’m just looking to keep the head down and work here I know its cliché but you’ve got three of four guys vying for two spots in the match day squads, with huge game coming up that’s just the focus for me.”
Having missed the entire Six Nations with a torn hamstring, the veteran hooker is just hoping to play some rugby this summer.
The Lions tour would be a dream, but Cronin would be just as happy to pull on the green jersey:
“The Lions is the pinnacle but we’ve got a great two test tour in Japan and America so the opportunity is there for guys that don’t make the Lions to go on that and be involved with getting an opportunity there.
“That’s a big carrot for every guy going out on the pitch at the weekend, I’m no different. I don’t want to be thinking about stuff like that, it is tough enough to get into the squad here at the moment.”
