Product Details

Re-live the British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand in 2017, deemed by many as the greatest series ever, with this DVD which features all the key action from each of the three tests. Up against the best team in world rugby, this series was never going to be an easy feat for the tourists, and what followed was an epic, closely fought battle, ending with honours even and the Lions standing proud and untamed.

The first test was played at the All Blacks' Auckland fortress, Eden Park, where they have not lost a game since 1994. After one of the greatest tries in Lions history the match was fairly even heading into halftime, but the All Blacks proved too strong in the second half and broke away to win 30-15.

A must-win second test lay ahead for the Lions on a rainy night in Wellington. In a match packed with drama, including a red card for Sonny Bill Williams, the Lions were trailing 18-9 with 20 minutes to play. What followed had Lions fans watching in disbelief and delight as two brilliant tries and a late penalty kick from Owen Farrell secured the win and sent the series to a decider.

The final test is a contest that no rugby fan will ever forget. The All Blacks started the game on fire, scoring two tries in the first half to lead 12-6 at the break. Still, the game was not over and in true Lions fashion they fought their way back to 3 points behind with just 10 minutes to play. Another Owen Farrell penalty sailed over in the 77th minute to bring them level, and ultimately draw the test series for the first time against New Zealand and re-write the history books.

Featuring highlights of the first test and every second of action from the second and third tests, as well as post-match interviews, watch the enthralling story of this historic tied series between the Lions and the All Blacks unfold. No one will ever forget the Lions Tour of 2017.
