On the first day of Lions’ Duty, players face a series of physical challenges

Tourists gathered in the Channel Islands to begin preparations for the next tour to South Africa

The British and Irish Lions have begun preparations for the tour to South Africa this summer, having met in Jersey yesterday.

Selected players traveled to the largest of the Channel Islands from across the UK and Ireland yesterday and are now settling in for their first full day of training.

Head coach Warren Gatland is working with a limited number of players on the two-week camp that prepares for the Japan game in Murrayfield on June 26.

That’s because a number of players based in England – and Finn Russell in France – take part in post-season matches, making them unavailable. You can see the full list and When will they join here?

That’s the effect on the team, Irish prostitute Ronan Keeler has been called in to help with the numbers, with Jimmy George and Luke Quan Dickey still at their clubs.

However, Kelleher is not an official summons.

Finally, a group of 26 players in jersey as preparations begin.

Today, the band is starting some work in the gym and also getting to know each other on the training ground and in the cryotherapy room.

Here are the best campground photos from INPHO photographers Dan Sheridan and Billy Stickland.

Jersey lions players: Josh Adams, Bondi Aki, Dan Biggar, Gareth Davies, Chris Harris, Robbie Henshaw, Conor Murray, Ali Price, Louis Reiss Zammit, Dohan van der Merwe, Anthony Watson, Liam Williams; Tudge Byrne, Jack Conan, Xander Fagerson, Taulope Valletau, Tudge Furlong, Ian Henderson, Alon Wayne Jones, Wayne Jones, Ronan Keeler, Courtney Luz, Ken Owens, Rory Sutherland, Justin Tiburek, Hamish Watson
