I went to the luncheon on Saturday.
Great event.
There were 134 ex British Lions there (played for GB on tour down under, or England/Wales in a World Cup in Australia/NZ)
I think they said there were 350 paying guests there too.

Was a great event.
Players who attended were awarded heritage numbers and certificates. There were some great stories and all of them were keen to talk to the average Joes like me. A really good experience. The access to the greats of the game is something other sports would be very jealous of:
