The British & Irish Lions tour of 2017 is certainly off with a bang!  The Lions and their partners have been in overdrive churning out social media and YouTube videos like no tour before it.  Here are our top 5 YouTube clips from behind the scenes of Lions so far.  Who would have thought Tight-head prop Tadgh Furlong would appear twice!

 

Graham Rowntree was on top form in this press interview, getting excited over the scrum in a way only props can.  "Oooooooooo"

 


 

 

 

With rumours that the forwards tied the laces of all the backs before training, ‘shoelace gate’, Maro Itoje denies any knowledge of the prank, while Ben Te’o insists the backs will get their own back.

Andy Farrell and Tadhg Furlong play a game of ‘him-or-me’. before heading out to New Zealand. Furlong has apparently elected his own nickname, ‘The Dukebox’, because he makes hit after hit.

 

 

Representatives from all four nations try to ‘smooth’ things over. Conor Murray admits to taking great pleasure in preventing an English Grand Slam in 2017, while Adam Jones gets in touch with Scottish culture, emerging with a kilt on.

 

 

As youngest tour member, Maro Itoje is responsible for the lion soft toy, BIL. Here, Alun Wyn Jones and Tadgh Furlong discuss Itoje’s misplacing of the lion. Itoje also admitted to liking period dramas, a particular favourite being Downton Abbey.

 

So there you have it, First XV’s top 5 video moments from within the 2017 Lions camp to date. With 3 weeks remaining in the tour, we can expect a great many more videos for fans to enjoy, by which point we would hope any top 5 video reel would include highlights of 3 test victories!
