Sea of red as the Lions touch down in Hong Kong

THE cream of Irish rugby touched down in Hong Kong this morning ahead of the Lions first match against the Barbarians on Saturday.

Leinster's Rob Kearney (27), Johnny Sexton (27), and Brian O'Driscoll (34), and Munster's Paul O'Connell (33) looked relaxed as they were joined by Cian Healy and other team members.

"It is really important (to win)," O'Driscoll said – who is enjoying his last Lions tour.
