Tunnel cam reveals moment Marcus Smith learns that he’s a British & Irish Lion
It’s been an incredible year for Marcus Smith winning the Premiership with Harlequins a couple of weeks ago before starring for England in the summer tests.
His year just took another turn as it was announced today that he is going to be called up by the British and Irish Lions.
He was playing for England against Canada in the second half of today’s clash at Twickenham when the news trickled in – he had no idea.
As the 22-year-old was taken off after another sublime performance he was taken away into the tunnel of England HQ and told the news that any rugby player dreams of.
The producers at Channel 4 cut to the cameras to show the moment that Marcus Smith was told the incredible news.
