This is the essential guide to the British & Irish Lions’ 2013 tour to Hong Kong and Australia.

Daniel Ford and Adam Hathaway (authors of A Fan’s Guide to World Rugby) profile each of the cities and stadiums on the Lions 2013 itinerary, providing fascinating insights to the history of the grounds and teams that play there as well as providing recommendations on local bars near the stadiums, how to get to the grounds, essential contact information, ground records and key things to see and do in each city.

John Griffiths (author of numerous books on the sport, including British Lions, Rugby’s Strangest Matches and the IRB World Rugby Yearbook 2012) brings his significant rugby knowledge to bear with an abridged history of the Lions, profiling each tour in their 125 year history, from the first tour in 1888 all the way through to the present day, highlighting key talking points, outstanding tourists and a brief resume of each Test match.

Also included is a comprehensive records section, featuring the fixtures and results of every tour in the Lions’ magnificent history.
