The inside story of The British and Irish Lions on their most famous tour; to South Africa in 1997.
The British and Irish Lions' tour to South Africa in 1997 has gone down in sporting folklore. With few giving them a chance, a disparate group of characters bonded into a band of brothers to upset the reigning World Champions, inspired by a coaching team seen by many in rugby as the greatest of all time. This is the inside story of that tour; told by those who were there.
