British & Irish Lions 2017

Exclusive Access To The Team, Behind The Team

The British & Irish Lions are recognised as the greatest touring team in world sport, where every four years, the finest players from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales come together to challenge the very best teams from the Southern Hemisphere. A successful Lions Tour is built around outstanding planning and a first class support system. To demonstrate this, we have created a series of behind the scenes videos showing how the team, behind the team at The British & Irish Lions come together and begin to operate as one, to deliver the best possible results on the pitch, in New Zealand next year.

Over the next eight months we will bring you an exclusive video series which delves into the Lion’s archives and follows the preparation that head coach Warren Gatland and his management team, as they make crucial decisions and key appointments of assistant coaches, their operations, medical and legal staff. Watch as they come together and prepare the players to defeat the highest ranking team in the world - The All Blacks.

Second in the series of these exclusive videos we hear from Gerard Carmody, Director of Operations at The British and Irish Lions. Gerard describes leading his team as the pinnacle of his career. Whether it’s the team medics getting the players back from recovery, or the strength and conditioning coaches that work with the players to ensure that they are at peak condition, the entire team have the sole focus of achieving success and winning the series.
