Last night Warren Gatland, the new British and Irish Lions coach, opened the Pink Lion by pulling its first pint, which of course was PINK ale. He was helped along by Martin Bayfield, Lewis Moody, Andy Irvine and Phil Vickery. Later in the evening the Official Thomas Pink Lions collection was unveiled.

Royal blues, and bright reds were a prominent feature of the collection, which was aptly modelled by Warren Gatland and the Lions themselves. Phil Vickery and Martin Bayfield recounted past Lions stories to a more then eager audience, supported by some rugby throwing lessons outside in the turfed out area.
