The British & Irish Lions

first_imgFriday Jul 3, 2009 The British & Irish Lions On Saturday we witnessed one of the greatest games ever to be played in Lions rugby history. It was an epic Test match that had drama from start to finish. The series is decided as a contest, but the British & Irish Lions live on, and still have plenty to prove as they must live up to those who fought before them.ADVERTISEMENTWe were hoping to post this brilliant video when the series was nicely poised at 1-1, adding to the excitement and build up towards the deciding Test at Ellis Park.Instead, we’re going to see if the Lions can redeem themselves by coming back and proving that they’re worthy of wearing the famous red jerseys, and can indeed beat the World Champions in their own backyard.The concept of the British & Irish Lions is steeped in history and tradition as legends of the game have represented four nations to join as one, and take on the the best from the south, every four years.The task itself is of epic proportions, but to be chosen as a Lion remains the ultimate honour for any player from England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales.This awesome video gives you a great feel for what the Lions is all about as we relive some of the greatest moments from past tours, as well as hear words from legends who’ve proudly been associated with the Lions.In terms of a tour result, going down 2-1 certainly looks better than 3-0. Will the Lions be able to pick themselves up for this dead rubber on Saturday, gaining further respect and admiration by doing so? There’s a few new faces on both sides, all of which have plenty to prove. We should be in for another classic encounter.ADVERTISEMENThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k7D9h1XqIYTime:06:06Springbok team:Zane Kirchner, Odwa Ndungane, Jaque Fourie, Wynand Olivier, Jongi Nokwe, Morne Steyn, Fourie du Preez, Ryan Kankowski, Juan Smith, Heinrich Brussow, Victor Matfield, Johann Muller, John Smit, Chilliboy Ralepelle, Tendai MtawariraADVERTISEMENTReplacements:Bismarck du Plessis, Gurthro Steenkamp, Deon Carstens, Steven Sykes, Pierre Spies, Ruan Pienaar, Francois SteynBritish & Irish Lions team:Rob Kearney, Ugo Monye, Tommy Bowe, Riki Flutey, Shane Williams, Stephen Jones, Mike Phillips, Jamie Heaslip, Martyn Williams, Joe Worsley, Paul O’Connell, Simon Shaw, Phil Vickery, Matthew Rees, Andrew SheridanReplacements:Ross Ford, John Hayes, Alun Wyn Jones, David Wallace, Tom Croft, Harry Ellis, James Hook Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
