The Lions forwards pull a prank on the backs

It looks like the Lions forwards are getting a bit bored on tour.

The British and Irish Lions forwards decided to have a bit of fun after training today, by playing a brilliant prank on the backs. Gatland’s forwards finished up their session a bit earlier than the backs did so they decided to really annoy the backs in good fashion.

The forwards decided to tie all the backs shoelaces together and threw their runners all around the place back in the changing room.

In a press conference later on in the morning Gatland says he’s not too sure who’s responsible but England prop Mako Vunipola seems to be getting most of  the blame.

Lock Maro Itoje was asked about the incident as well, to which he replied..

 “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Centre Ben Te’o had this to say when asked if the back are plotting revenge..

“Yeah I think the boys, we’re going to get together and have a little meeting. I actually don’t have any laces at the moment, so it would be nice if they could return them!”

We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
