Roberts was forced from the field against the NSW Waratahs with a hamstring injury just a week before the first test and feared his tour was over. He returned for the decider and marked his comeback his first try on tour and it's a summer that will remain long in the memory for Roberts.
"We made history," he said.
"For all 80 people on that tour, it is something to savour for the rest of our days.
"It will probably take a few weeks for it to sink in. To see how many people turned up to support us is pretty special.
"Ultimately not many Lions tours are victorious especially over the last 50 or 60 years.
"We are very proud of that and hopefully the boys can enjoy a good off-season now over the summer and just really reminisce for what we have achieved.
"At one point of the tour I thought I was going home with my hamstring, certainly when I did it.
"I was very nervous about what the scan would show, I pretty much accepted I was probably going home.
"I was quite a nasty hamstring tear so I owe my appearance in the third test to the medical team on tour.
"Team doctor James Robson and Prav Mathema the physio worked their magic!"
