British Lions vs Royal XV

On 30 May 2009 the British and Irish Lions played their first match at the Royal Bafokeng stadium near Rustenburg against the Royal XV team. The Lions did’nt played well at all but still manage to scrape through to win the match. Below is a photo of Paul O’Connell, Captian and Lock Forward of the Lions.
