Pink Lion on the Green

Skipper Sam Warburton was among five British & Irish Lions squad members who helped Thomas Pink transform the legendary White Horse pub in Parsons Green into ‘The Pink Lion’ to celebrate the upcoming Tour to Hong Kong and Australia on Saturday.

The pop-up pub in South West London was transformed into a mecca for stylish rugby fans, featuring Astroturf bars, screenings of historic matches and homebrewed Pink Pints thanks to The Lions’ Official Outfitters.

To kick off the celebrations, Question of Sport presenter and Lions veteran Matt Dawson hosted a touch rugby session for 40 local young players on Parsons Green.

Members of the 2013 Lions squad including captain and Thomas Pink ambassador Warburton, George North, Rob Kearney, Ben Youngs and Geoff Parling joined in on the action, before presenting the players with a special Pink rugby ball as a memento of the event.
