The Lions tour is a tradition going back over 100 years and it’s as popular as ever and it’s great to see in this day and age of professional rugby. This tour is going to be very interesting because the Springboks haven’t played a game since the World Cup final in 2019, so the South African’s won’t have the same advantage like they normally would. Who’s going to win the test series? There’s going to be nothing in it, no doubt about it and we can’t wait to see the best of Britain and Ireland up against the best that South Africa have to offer.
