The British & Irish Lions are one of the most famous and feted teams in the world of rugby. Every four years, the Lions - selected from the national sides of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland - head to the southern hemisphere to do battle with New Zealand, Australia or South Africa. 125 Years of the British & Irish Lions covers the entire period of the Lions' existence, from the first recorded rugby tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1888 to the serieswinning tour to Australia in 2013. It highlights the fulfilment, pride and passion that every British or Irish player feels upon being selected to play as a Lion, and celebrates the key moments that have made the Lions such a magical part of rugby folklore. The Lions stand unique in the game as the last true tourists. They enjoy phenomenal support, as highlighted by the tens of thousands who now follow the Lions on their tours to the southern hemisphere. Never was this more true than in Australia in 2013. 125 Years of the British & Irish Lions includes a full account of the 2013 tour and how the Lions triumphed to end a 16-year period of disappointment.
