Overview:Behind the Lions: Playing Rugby for the British & Irish Lions - For 125 years the British & Irish Lions have stood out as a unique emblem in world sport. They represent the best of the best from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, coming together every four years under a united badge to take on the rugby greats of the southern hemisphere. Lions tours are steeped in history and tradition yet maintain a vibrant standing in the modern era. The Lions badge is a symbol of the ethics, values and the romance at the heart of Test match rugby union and represents the pinnacle for every international player in Britain and Ireland. As the Lions party departs the shores of Britain and Ireland, a great red wave of support follows them as thousands of fans make a rugby pilgrimage to see their heroes do battle with the superpowers of the world game - and with the weight of history itself. Behind the Lions sees four esteemed rugby writers from each of the Home Nations delve to the very heart of what it means to be a Lion, interviewing a vast array of former tourists to uncover the passion, pride and honour experienced when wearing the famous red jersey. It is a tale of heart-break and ecstasy, humour and poignancy that is at once inspirational, moving and utterly compelling. And it is the only story worth hearing: the players' own. This is the history of the British & Irish Lions - in their own words.
