WATCH: British and Irish Lions meet up for the first time

British and Irish Lions meet up for the first time.

The British & Irish Lions met in London yesterday for the very first time since the touring squad was named a couple of weeks back.

For some players it’s a completely new experience, while for others they get to see some familiar faces having toured previously.

Munster’s Peter O’Mahony, CJ Stander and Conor Murray were all in London for the event. It was great to see Murray there especially and also great to see him back playing last Saturday as he was sidelined with a shoulder injury since March.

Today was a great opportunity for the players to meet up and have a chat, put on their full kit for some photo calls and of course pick up their new Lions gear for the Summer tour.

Those involved in play-offs, semi-finals and finals will shift their focus straight back to their clubs after today, before jetting out less than a week after the Aviva & PRO12 finals ahead of their first game in Whangarei against a Provincial Union.
