The Lions Tour to South Africa Gets the Green Light

The British and Irish Lions tour will go ahead this summer in South Africa, great news for rugby fans and sponsors a like?

Still hard to work out why it couldn’t be pushed back till next summer? A Lions tour without fans, isn’t really a Lions tour? With summer tours planned next summer for the different rugby nations, I suppose it has to be this summer or never. The World Champions up against the best of Britain and Ireland, how good does that sound and who will make the plane? What will the management be? Who will be captain? All big questions for Lions coach Warren Gatland the New Zealander will again lead the tour for the third time in a row. The former Welsh coach was watching the Six Nations closely over the past few weeks and the decisions he makes will be very interesting in the next few weeks.
