About this title


The British & Irish Lions are one of the most famous and feted teams in the world of rugby. Every four years, the Lions—selected from the national sides of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland—head to the southern hemisphere to do battle with New Zealand, Australia, or South Africa. 125 Years of the British & Irish Lions covers the entire period of the Lions’ existence, from the first recorded rugby tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1888 to the series-winning tour to Australia in 2013. It highlights the fulfillment, pride, and passion that every British or Irish player feels upon being selected to play as a Lion, and celebrates the key moments that have made the Lions such a magical part of rugby folklore. The Lions stand unique in the game as the last true tourists. They enjoy phenomenal support, as highlighted by the tens of thousands who now follow the Lions on their tours to the southern hemisphere. Never was this more true than in Australia in 2013. The newly revised and updated edition of 125 Years of the British & Irish Lions includes a full account of the 2013 Six Nations tournament and how the Lions triumphed to end a 16-year period of disappointment.

After retiring from rugby, he became a respected journalist and completed work on the first edition of this book prior to his death. Greg Thomas is Clem Thomas' son. He is a former Swansea and London Welsh center/wing and student international for Wales. In 2009 he was appointed head of media and communications for the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. Now residing in Sydney, he will once again be part of the Lions management team for their 2013 tour to Australia
