Greatest Lion of the pro era?
June 28, 2013
To coincide with the British & Irish Lions' tour of Australia, and in association with Dove Men+Care, we are asking you to vote on our short-list of greatest Lions moments of the professional era. We'll announce the results of each poll as we build up to the eagerly-anticipated Test series against the Wallabies.
In the penultimate part of our series, we want you to pick the greatest Lion of the pro era. Will Brian O'Driscoll, a former Lions captain who is currently on his fourth tour, get your vote? Perhaps Martin Johnson, the skipper of the victorious 1997 tour and the only man to have led the elite tourists twice, be your pick? Maybe Jeremy Guscott, who famously drop-kicked the Lions to glory in 1997, will be your choice? Jonny Wilkinson has graced two tours and may warrant your vote while Keith Wood will not be short of support having been pivotal in 1997 and 2001.
Re-live their great moments above, select your favourite using our poll and then let us know your thoughts below.
Coming soon...the best British & Irish Lions tour of the pro era.
