The British & Irish Lions are offering 20 Auckland children the chance to take part in Tuesday’s public training session at North Harbour Stadium.

The entire Lions squad will be present for the session, which will offer the public an insight into how they prepare for big matches.

And for the last part, 20 talented young rugby players from the area will take to the field to join in with the tourists.

The lucky youngsters are being selected from schools and clubs by local rugby officials.

Head coach Sir Clive Woodward said as well as being in New Zealand to win matches, the Lions are determined to engage with the New Zealand public.
