British & Irish Lions

The British & Irish Lions is a rugby union team selected from players eligible for the national teams of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The Lions are a Test side and most often select players who have already played for their national team, but they can pick uncapped players who are eligible to any one of the four unions. The team currently tours every four years, with these rotating between Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in order. The most recent Test series, the 2017 series against New Zealand, was drawn 1–1.
