The Lions tours are awaited eagerly by rugby fans all over the world and test matches have produced some of the greatest moments in rugby history.
To be picked for the Lions is every home nations players dream and The Lions jersey is one of the most iconic in world sport. With a history dating back to 1888 and the first official tour in 1910 this is a team steeped in rugby history.
The kit has been supplied by adidas since the 1997 tour and the three stripes trademark has now become synonymous with the Lions jersey.
