And the campest looking photo of the week award (not that I’d say it to the players’ faces) goes to NTL for this shot of Lions’ players Johnny Wilkinson, Will Greenwood and Ronan O’Gara – I bet the New Zealanders, famous for that stoopid Haka war dance, are bricking it after seeing this.
For those who want to get all the behind the scenes action from the forthcoming rugby tour, Lions’ sponsor ntl is offering exclusive video footage via its broadband portal, ntlworld.com. Promised are exclusive interviews with the players, coaches and the management staff and even a Big Brother style diary room. There are also competitions to win a trip to see the action live in New Zealand.
When the British and Irish Lions met the Argentinian Pumas the other day it wasn’t so much a battle of the big cats as a domestic squabble between two manky moggies. In the end it was probably the Pumas that should have scratched the Lions’ eyes. But that was just a dress rehearsal for the real battle against the New Zealanders which begins June 4th.
