The World's Greatest, Tour.

The British & Irish Lions will tour South Africa in 2021 to play an incredible eight-match tour.

The British & Irish Lions will play three Test matches against the reigning World Champions South Africa on their epic tour in 2021 as well as five other matches across four different locations.

The Lions are the greatest touring rugby team in the world. Their journey in 2021 will be a special one.

In 2009, The Lions lost the Test series 2-1 but following their series draw against New Zealand in 2017, will have high hopes of repeating the victory in 1997.
