Friday Funnies - Jamie Roberts helps Luke Fitzgerald to cool off

Friday Funnies - Jamie Roberts helps Luke Fitzgerald to cool off

Following the successful 1997 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa, a fantastic DVD was released that captured behind the scenes footage of the antics that took place both on the field, and off it. Here we have a 2009 preview of what we might see when the latest DVD gets released.

While on tour, obviously the biggest goal is to achieve on the rugby field. These guys are only human though, and many of them youngsters, so having a laugh and enjoying yourself off the field is just as big a part of touring as winning is.

At a photo shoot in Bloemfontein ahead of the tour match against the Cheetahs, Ireland and Lions wing Tommy Bowe played cameraman and commentator, as he snapped some of the behind the scenes bits that take place with the media and sponsors.

First its a bit of commentary on the minorities of the tour party, the Scots, and then its a bit of boyish mischief from the Lions Player of the Series, Jamie Roberts.

Luke Fitzgerald found himself in poser mode, as he sat elegantly on the edge of an icy hotel swimming pool as Bowe and Roberts plotted his demise...

Watch the photographers as they run in to capture the moment, which weve compiled for you here in a series of pics.

the bit where Roberts says "come on, this is for 'Living with the Lions!'" was pretty funny.

Come on guys, Fitzy's only a winger. He doesn't have to be an ogre.

Is Fitz that small? He looks big enough, considering that he's a winger, 90kg apparantly.
