The last tour by the Lions to Australia was a decade ago when the Lions played 10 matches including three Tests. They won seven matches, including the first Test against the Wallabies, and lost three. These defeats were against Australia A and the Wallabies in the second and third internationals. The vital third Test was won by the Wallabies 16–13 at Stadium Australia, Sydney, in front of a crowd of 84,188 as the Wallabies clinched the series.
There is already great anticipation from fans around the world and, with the dates and destinations now confirmed, the countdown has truly begun for what promises to be another thrilling Lions tour.
The venues, kick off times and broadcasting schedule will be confirmed in due course.
