Australia to Host the Lions Tour 2021?

The Times rugby journalist and New Zealand ‘rugby favourite’ Stephen Jones is giving an exclusive of how Australia will step in and offer to host the Lions tour 2021

‘Lions Saviours. Australia offer to host Lions series between Springboks v Lions. Profits shared between two, Australia taking costs only. Provincial warm-ups either with SA or Aust SR teams. Existing slot, with fans! Easily best option!!’

Australia hosted the Rugby Championship between, The Wallabies, The All Blacks and the Pumas in the Autumn, South Africa opted to give it a skip, but have committed to the rugby championship for the next ten years after speculation of them leaving. Australia have currently very little cases of Covid-19 and done an excellent job of keeping the virus at bay, is this a good idea to host the Lions tour in Australia? Or should they just push the Lions tour back to 2021 when we have a better hold of the virus?
