British and Irish Lions 2017 Tour

Have you heard about the Lions Rugby Team? If you haven’t then its time to come out from under that rock you have been hiding under. The Rugby Stars of Britain and Ireland all join together every few years to take on the world in Rugby games that are talked about worldwide, and boy have they created some fantastic stories for generations to keep passing down.

With the British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand underway I can’t help wishing I was out there cheering them on.  With 4 children that just isn’t going to happen with the prices that they charge.  I should have just started saving a few years ago and I might have been able to go.

If you are single with no children or even if you’re loaded it would be an ideal holiday to be out in New Zealand watching the rugby….What more do you want? Maybe British Lions rugby shirts?


Fans getting along

I can only imagine the atmosphere out there now, I bet its brilliant.  Rugby fans are not like football fans are they? Both the Lions fans and whichever team they are playing fans will be sitting down having a drink or ten together laughing and joking with one another.  But if it was football, we wouldn’t have a fan left out there apart from the odd drunk who fell asleep somewhere and couldn’t find his mates to join in with the riot.

Would that be you ??


The shortened story

The Lions first came together back in 1888 when they toured Austrailia

and New Zealand, but they weren’t called what they are today they were called Shaw and Shrewsbury with mainly English players and just a handful of Welsh and Scottish.

They officially became the British Lions in 1950 after British and South African journalists nicknamed them that in the previous tour of South Africa in 1924.

In 2001 they officially became known as we know them today, The British and Irish Lions.

They have come along way since 1888 haven’t they?

The Lions tour every 4 years and alternate between Austrailia, New Zealand and South Africa although they do play nearby countries while they are away.  They have been playing in their famous red rugby shirts since 1950 but before that, they went through a few different colours until they picked the one they use today.

Wear it with pride

Now we all love to wear our club or country’s national colours while they are playing, it makes us feel part of the game in some way.  So if you haven’t been lucky enough to get to games at least you can show your support by wearing the shirts and if you’re feeling a bit wild and crazy even a bit of face paint and an inflatable hand.

The British and Irish Lions have some stunning clothing out as well as the jerseys they wear on the pitch that you can buy, along with a wide range of merchandise and these are just a few things.

Hi
I like the white & black shirts. But the red one is too much like Manchester United shirt ! & I’m no fan of man utd !! lol Or any football team come to that.
I can’t believe how pricey they’ve become over the years ? Must be me getting old ! lol
Great site for any rugby kit.
Thanks
Paul

Oh yes the price they are these days is ridiculous, I think they should pay the players less to make merchandise cheaper for the fans

Thanks for the information 🙂 You have taken a lot of the work out of searching for great prices!

That my friend is much appreciated! You can find man Utd shirts here even though I am a Liverpool fan myself I can still be civil and keep our football rivalry out of it.

I love your selection! I enjoyed learning from your post. It is amazing that they have been around since 1888! wow, great article!

Most people don’t realise that either. I would have loved to be around to see their first game to see how different it all was back then. I’m glad you enjoyed this post 🙂

Hi there!

Great post, I am a big fan of rugby and I enjoy watching the Lions. I always thought that those shirts were somewhere over 100 pounds imagine my surprise when I’ve seen that they were on promotion and a normal shirt was 25 pounds. It is incredibly cheap. I will make sure to buy a few before the promotion expires! Thank you for your review! Keep up with the good work!

Yes after the tour is over the prices come down which I think is wrong! The price should be kept low always!
