The Lions used the School’s facilities for their recovery session following their 64-0 win over the Combined Country side on Tuesday evening in Newcastle.

British and Irish Lions Manager Andy Irvine thanked Knox for its hospitality and presented Knox MIC of Rugby Mr John Rownes with a plaque of appreciation.

The Lions will play a sold-out three game series against the Australian Wallabies in late June and early July.
