Brian O’Driscoll presents the Lions players their test jersey

O’Driscoll presents first test team with their jerseys

Former British and Irish Lions captain Brian O’Driscoll presented the British and Irish Lions team with their matchday were their match day jerseys for Saturday’s first test with the All Blacks on this morning in New Zealand.

It was  a special moment for Ireland’s five members, Captain Peter O’Mahony, Sean O’Brien, Tadhg Furlong, Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray of the panel as it was their former teammate Brian O’Driscoll who provided them with their jerseys.

O’Driscoll was part of the calamitous 2005 tour to New Zealand. Hopefully it will be different this time around as the Lions look for only their second ever series win over the All Blacks.
