Champagne, James Bond and 'Las Vegas baby'! Victorious Lions party in style

Winning a Lions series and making plans to tear it up in Sydney was not enough to keep eight Lions offline.

THE APPEARANCE OF Daniel Craig – James Bond – in the triumphant Lions, post-match dressing room added to the sense of blissful unreality.

Jonny Sexton, who raced in for a crucial second half try, remarked after the Lions 41-16 win that he felt as if he was living in a real-time DVD.

The champagne sure tasted real and the Lions are currently engaged in the mother, father and Uncle Warren of all benders. Some of the victorious players found time to send out tweets before hitting the Sydney streets. Check out the best here:

Enjoy the party lads and enjoy the bitter, stinging victory hangover tomorrow.
