Commemorating 125 years of tours by the British and Irish Lions rugby union team, this updated chronicle includes stories, anecdotes, interviews, and images from the 2013 Lions tour, the controversial and hugely exciting test series that witnessed the Lions’ greatest triumph in 16 years. Four respected rugby writers representing each of the Home Nations delve into what it means to play for the Lions.
