26 players have assembled in Jersey to begin preparations for the British & Irish Lions’ Vodafone Lions 1888 Cup game against Japan on Saturday, June 26 (kick-off 3pm).

Leinster and Ireland hooker Ronan Kelleher will train with the Lions squad this week, but has not been formally added to the 37-man touring party.

Head coach Warren Gatland commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Ronan to train with the squad this week while we wait for Jamie George to complete his domestic season with Saracens next weekend.”
