Taking on the legends
Attendees had the opportunity to take on the experts and test their own sporting prowess in a game of air hockey, table football and darts. Guests who managed to beat the panel were awarded with a signed Lions rugby ball.
“We’re delighted to give our clients and candidates the opportunity to meet some of Britain and Ireland’s greatest rugby legends. It’s been fantastic to see how enthusiastic the panel were to meet with fans and we’re excited to continue supporting the Lions throughout their tour,” Chris continued.
