We take a look at the three most unlikely friendships that have blossomed during the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa.
#1. Bundee Aki & Owen Farrell
Aki Said: “”Honestly, I’ve learnt so much off that guy. I didn’t think I’d get along with him so well. Obviously you only know him from across the pitch, you only know him when you’re playing against him.Embed from Getty Images
“But the standards he’s been doing when I’m not selected, and the way he’s been approaching me as a person and as a player, he’s literally hanging around with us every single day, which is cool, because you don’t see that side of him.
“He’s a great bloke to have around, I’ve learnt so much off him. Like I said, I have enjoyed my time being here.”
