Lions Inspire Jersey's Schoolchildren

Schoolchildren have been getting training tips from British and Irish Lions players.

Louis Rees-Zammit, Tom Curry, Ali Price and Bundee Aki have been visiting secondary schools.

It's part of the squad's community programme while they are in the island on a pre-tour training camp.




The Lions enjoyed their schools visits too:

Meanwhile, another 1200 rugby fans will get the chance to see how the players prepare for game later.

It's the second open training session at Jersey Rugby Club in St Peter.  Like those who attended last Friday, the spectators won tickets in a Jersey Sport Ballot.

Warren Gatland has announced his squad for this Saturday's rugby union warm-up with Japan at Murrayfield.

Eight players will make their British and Irish Lions debuts from the start, including Wales' wing Josh Adams and Scotland flanker Hamish Watson.

No English players are picked in the starting 15 - but most have been involved for their clubs recently. 

16,500 fans will be at the match, which takes place a day before the squad fly to South Africa.
