The Lions tour of New Zealand is still several months away but that hasn’t stopped us from looking forward to it already.
Coming off the back of a massive series win over Australia, absolutely smashing the Wallabies in the final test, the Lions face the daunting task of trying to take down the back to back world champions.
It’s fitting that the video opens up with words from Brian O’Driscoll, the Lions captain the last time they toured New Zealand, whose tournament was horrifically ended after a matter of minutes in the first test as a result of the infamous spear tackle.
“It’s taken a long time for me to understand how hard it is to win a series, and I want it so badly and we all have to want it so badly”
The 2017 tour includes the usual three test matches along with some huge midweek games against the likes of the Crusaders, the Chiefs and the Maori All Blacks. You can view the full schedule here
