The British Lions's tour of Australia is the biggest rugby event of the year. This tour book gives an account of the build-up to the competition, detailed analysis of all the matches and reflections by some of the biggest names in the rugby world. Witness the planning, the training, the partying and the passion that formed the Lions's unquenchable team spirit. Lawrence Dallaglio and coach Graham Henry give their opinions on the test matches, and the Australian viewpoint is given by the country's legendary fly-half Michael Lynagh, who follows the big matches in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. A fitting testimony and record of a truly unforgettable tournament, including a section of statistics with details of all ten matches - and over 100 colour photographs, supplied by the official Lions photographers. The book also contains a foreword by the greatest British Lion of them all - Willie John McBride.
