Rugby Union: Full Lions Tour Schedule

This summer, the British and Irish Lions will start their international battle with a game against Japan on the 26th June, held at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. They will then be in South Africa, for what is promised to be an exciting and jam-packed international rugby union tour – the first since the Coronavirus Pandemic hit. The tour will include eight matches (with three test matches) and will all be played in the Guateng and Capetown areas, to minimise risk of disruption caused by the pandemic. The last time the Lion’s beat the South Africans on home turf was 1997, so let’s hope for a victory for the red and white giants. Catch all games live on Sky Sports. Good luck Lions!
