UAE rugby fans
didn't see that coming! The British and Irish Lions jetted into Dubai following
their triumphant success in Australia. The team stopped off en route from Down Under and while
they didn’t have time for a layover, they didn’t disappoint fans either!
The Lions chilled out in the Emirates Business Lounge
at Dubai International Airport last en route to London Heathrow and they were
inundated with fans who wanted to wish them well.

their win with their family and friends.”
