Come join us to help welcome the Lions to Hamilton.

We are holding an event to say a good ol’ Waikato welcome to the Lions supporters visiting Hamilton and also hear the inspirational story of Lions legend Tom Smith.

Tom Smith was the cornerstone of the Scottish and British and Irish Lions forward pack between 1997 and 2005. He has had a successful international rugby career whilst living with epilepsy since the age of 18. 'The seizures started totally out of the blue,' he explains. 'There was no warning, no trigger.

I had not suffered any head injury in spite of the amount of rugby I played. It literally happened overnight - nocturnal seizures. At the time it was quite distressing.' Tom has gone on to have a successful career, lives life to the fullest and is passionate about raising awareness of epilepsy.

So come along to hear more of Tom’s inspirational story!

Description: Come join us for an evening to hear the inspirational story of Tom Smith, have the opportunity to ask him questions and meet him in person.

All welcome.
