This is why we love Lions tours.
Ireland’s Paul O’Connell rooming with Welsh winger Shane Williams. This is one of the many unique things about a Lions tour. Bitter Six Nations rivals coming together, making each other cups of tea!
The two legends recently sat down for a lively discussion about this summer’s tour with sponsors Standard Live Investments and got talking about the 2005 tour of New Zealand where they were roommates.
Apparently O’Connell made a mean cup of tea, but Williams had some grooming techniques that the Irish lock didn’t come across before.
“I thought the Welsh boys were the first ones to start wearing fake tan and that.
The first man, male, I ever saw with a hair-straightener was Shane Williams. Didn’t even try and hide it when he unpacked his luggage. Hair-straightener straight out on the bed… couldn’t believe it.”
Have a watch below from around the 18:30 mark.
