The British and Irish Lions celebrated their thrilling Test series draw with the All Blacks in style by having a boozy session at the team hotel.

Warren Gatland allowed his players to unwind following five weeks of hard work in New Zealand and they certainly made the most of it as they posted a number of photos and videos showing their long night of drinking.

The Lions produced their best form to come from 1-0 down in the series to compete against the world's greatest rugby team and were unlucky not to come away with a victory following the thrilling finale to events at Eden Park.

The players certainly showed their amazing team spirit as James Haskell posted a number of pictures and videos on his Instagram account showing a different side to the Lions players.

The pictures clearly show the amount of beer that was consumed through the evening and the team were certainly determined to make the most of the empty crates!

Haskell was sat alongside Rory Best and Jack Nowell as they posted a picture of the players making good use of their empty Corono Extra and Rochdale Cider boxes.

The fun didn't stop there as Haskell also uploaded a video of him going through the pain barrier once again - this time away from the field as he appears with a number of larger skewers planted into his head!

There were clearly a number of games being played as a similar punishment was handed out to Ireland captain Best who did not seem impressed with his team-mates.

Liam Williams also featured prominently on Haskell's social media account as he was pictured in a strange outfit with a cut-shirt and was wearing a skull cap.

The Lions return to England this week before the players jet off on a well deserved summer holiday.
