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.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
