It’s almost time.

The British & Irish Lions are in London today, meeting up as a squad 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.

Today is an opportunity for the players to meet up and have a chat, get kitted out for some photo calls and of course pick up their absolutely awesome stash.

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 XV.
