James Haskell has summed up his thoughts and emotions in an Instagram post following the British & Irish Lions hugely successful tour in New Zealand.
All over! Smile because it happened , don’t cry because its over. What a 7 weeks. I have made friends for life and played with some unreal lads. Anyone who wrote off Northern hemisphere rugby post 2015, for which there were loads, i personally think its in a great place 😂😂👍🏻 Time off and then its back to beating each other up.
His post immediately received lots of positive reaction from Lions fans welcoming the England flanker home, praising him for his efforts in New Zealand.
Warren Gatland’s men had returned to London with the team on Wednesday afternoon clutching the trophy after the Lions drew 1-1 against the All Blacks.
