One Lions fan had a lot of fun busting some moves in the stands

Wearing full Lion fancy dress, he made the most of stoppage in play…and he was just one of many fans having fun in awesome costumes for the Test.

The All Blacks Twitter account captured the moment an excitable British and Irish Lions fan showed off some dance moves in the stands.

During stoppage in play at Eden Park, where the Lions faced New Zealand for the third and final Test, one man in the crowd – yep, dressed as a lion – got up to have a bit of a boogie.

And he just looks like he had a great time while doing so.

Of course, he wasn’t the only fan dressed appropriately for the nail-biting game in Auckland…Many others in the stands opted for either Lion facepaint or headgear.

Some stellar costume choices all round.

Unfortunately for the visitors, the support from the crowds wasn’t enough for them to edge it in what was a super dramatic game.

The Lions ended up drawing 15-15 with New Zealand, with the series finishing 1-1.
