The 2021 Tour is underway tonight with a Test match at Murrayfield against Japan. But the main course is the Tour of South Africa to meet the 2019 World Cup Champions in a 3 Test match series. The Lions head in as underdogs and all matches are to be played behind closed doors taking away one of the magical elements of any Lions Tour. Still after the Series draw in 2017 against the All Blacks hopes in the British Isles are of a shock result.

The team will be dominated by the Welsh coming off a Grand Slam in the 6 Nations with Ireland and Scotland contributing a major chunk of the remaining side. The English will be down on numbers after a poor 6 Nations

Players to look out for: Maro Itoje (England), Finn Russell (Scotland), Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales), Pieter-Steph du Toit (South Africa), Siya Kolisi (South Africa), and Cheslin Kolbe (South Africa)
