Rugby legend presents Lions with their jerseys ahead of opening Test

With just one day to go before first Test between New Zealand and the British and Irish Lions, former Ireland star Brian O’Driscoll was asked to present the jerseys to the players. 

Before asking each player to come up, one at a time, to receive their tops, BOD explained what the Lions meant to him and what it means to everybody back home

O’Driscoll’s fellow countryman Peter O’Mahony will captain the Lions in the opening Test after leading the Lions to an impressive triumph against the Maori All Blacks last Saturday.
