This is what rugby is all about...


With an estimated 20,000 plus Lions fans expected to travel to New Zealand in the summer and with hotel accommodation either sold out or unaffordable, it is great to see that many Kiwi fans have offered to open up their homes to accommodate British and Irish visitors.
A Facebook page, Adopt a Lions Fan 2017, has been set up encouraging  locals to open their homes for free and "adopt a Lions fan (or two), and really show them the true hospitality Kiwis are world famous for".
It's a fantastic idea and heartwarming to see that there are so many New Zealanders keen to play host and provide hospitality to travelling fans.
What a wonderful thing this game of ours is...

Don't they have AirBNB down there? Totally agree that it's a fantastic reflection of the game's spirit that organisers and members of the public would offer up their own homes like this, but shouldn't they be able to earn a few bob at the same time?
