Wood lauds Lions fans

Legendary Lions hooker Keith Wood tells lionstour.com – the official travel site for the 2013 tour – all about his memories of the last trip to Australia.

Here’s a taster of what the former Ireland hooker had to say on a remarkable adventure Down Under and an incredible start to the Test series at The Gabba….

“We were down in the bowels of the stadium before the first Test in Brisbane and you could just hear this noise, like a train. We had no idea what it was but we knew it was special,” said Wood.

“It wasn’t until we came up those final few steps into stadium that we realised it was full of red – and it was magic. You were literally carried the last few steps.

“It shocked the Aussies as much as our performance did and I am sure the 2013 tour will be even bigger in terms of support.”
