The Lions greet the final whistle in the third Test


The Lions, under the guidance of head coach Warren Gatland, finished the Test series with an historic 2-1 triumph.

And their overall record was played 10, won eight and lost just two - to the Brumbies and to Australia in the second Test.

There might be four years to wait until the Lions are next in action - with New Zealand their next destination - however you can relive every moment of their 2013 tour right here.
