Welsh, English, Irish and Scottish rugby supporters have all made their way to Brisbane to support the Lions squad ahead of their first test against Australia.

The traditional foes have put aside their differences to support the Lions squad which is dominated by Welsh players.

Eight Welshmen are in the starting line up, one short of the record of nine.
