A Lions Tour remains the ‘Everest’ in terms of players’ goals and achievements and that goes in tandem with the huge volume of support the Lions attract as the greatest touring team of all. “This 10-game Tour will not only bring together the best Britain and Ireland has to offer it will also make Lions history with an opening game in Hong Kong against the Barbarians. With three Test matches and six provincial games in Australia, the next Lions Tour will take place 125 years after the Lions first toured Australia and will be the next defining chapter in Lions’ history.  We hope as many fans as possible will join the team on this incredible journey.”Below are the fixtures, and below that in our Related Posts section we’ve got ten classic Lions videos from previous tours for you to have a browse through.DateOpponentsLocationSat 1 June 2013BarbariansHong KongWed 5 June 2013Western Force PerthSat 8 June 2013Queensland RedsBrisbaneWed 12 June 2013Combined Country NewcastleSat 15 June 2013NSW WaratahsSydneyTue 18 June 2013ACT BrumbiesCanberraSat 22 June 2013AustraliaBrisbaneTue 25 June 2013Melbourne RebelsMelbourneSat 29 June 2013AustraliaMelbourneSat 6 July 2013AustraliaSydneyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2013 Related Articles 235 WEEKS AGO Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions… 399 WEEKS AGO Brian O’Driscoll’s incredible skill at training… 413 WEEKS AGO Montage of Amazing Lions Test series in Australia,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
