The Lions touch down in Oz, hit the beach

Warren Gatland’s side flew into Perth this morning and took to the seaside for a recovery session.

AFTER WEEKS OF preparation and a 59-8 win over the Barbarians in Hong Kong, the British & Irish Lions arrived in Australia this morning.

To shake off the jet lag, the squad had a light training session then headed to Perth’s City Beach for a recovery session. They face Western Force on Wednesday and will be captain by Ireland’s Brian O’Driscoll.
