LION KINGS - 1st June – 6th July 2013
Re-live the incredible action, drama and excitement of the British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013, where they triumphed in emphatic fashion to secure their first Lions Test series victory since the heroes of ’97 and their first on Australian soil for 24 years.
And what a win it was! In front of tens of thousands of dedicated Lions travelling supporters, the crusaders set the standard early on, winning all but one of their warm up games before edging the first Test with a 23 - 21 victory over the Wallabies.
The second Test was even closer with Australia winning 16-15 in a hard-fought encounter that would see injury to Lions Captain Sam Warburton ruled out of the final Test. A Wallaby try in the closing minutes broke Lions hearts and meant the series would go down to a mouth-watering ‘winner takes all’ final showdown at the ANZ stadium in Sydney.
The Lions saved their best performance to last, smashing the Wallabies 41 – 16, amassing a record-breaking Test match points total and claiming their first series win over Australia since 1989. The Lions were outstanding, scoring 4 fabulous tries and dominating up front in one of the greatest Lions victories of all time, with ‘Man of the Series’ Leigh Halfpenny also scoring the most points ever in a Lions Test.
Action from every game in Australia, extended highlights of each Test plus a bonus disc of the record-breaking third and final Test match in full - this is the amazing story of the victorious British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013.
