British LionsFOUR long years ago it was about pride - the pride that took the Lions close to glorious triumph in South Africa, but it wasn't to be and caused agony for the players, the squad, the management and of course, the army of loyal and dedicated fans.

In 2013, Australia, it fell upon the shoulders of one of the youngest Lions squads in living memory to restore the honour of the British & Irish Lions - a win down under was 24 years in the waiting.

In true Lions form, they hid from no man and opened their doors to the Lions Raw film crew who captured every moment of our crusaders journey from pre tour training camps to the emphatic demolition of the Wallabies in the 3rd Test in Sydney on 6th July.

Lions RAWThis is the journey of the Lions 2013 - open, honest, impassioned and brutally candid. Now it is time to see what really happened behind the scenes under incredible circumstances - the personalities, the drama, the lows, the disappointments and the incredible highs.

From the crushing lows of injury and defeat to the highest highs of victory, this documentary delivers what no other Lions DVD has for 16 years - a winning series to savour. This is the first Lions behind the scenes film to be filmed in full HD, including stunning slo-motion and cinematic lenses.

 

And we have 3 copies of Lions RAW - the behind the scenes access all areas film along with Disc 2 packed with exciting & entertaining extras to give away!

British & Irish Lions 2013 CompetitionCompetition

British LionsRE-LIVE the incredible action, drama and excitement of the British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013, where they triumphed in emphatic fashion to secure their first Lions Test series victory since the heroes of ’97 and their first on Australian soil for 24 years.

And what a win it was! In front of tens of thousands of dedicated Lions travelling supporters, the crusaders set the standard early on, winning all but one of their warm up games before edging the first Test with a
23 - 21 victory over the Wallabies.

British Lions 2013 Official FilmThe second Test was even closer with Australia winning 16-15 in a hard-fought encounter that would see injury to Lions Captain Sam Warburton ruled out of the final Test. A Wallaby try in the closing minutes broke Lions hearts and meant the series would go down to a mouth-watering ‘winner takes all’ final showdown at the ANZ stadium in Sydney.

The Lions saved their best performance to last, smashing the Wallabies 41 – 16, amassing a record-breaking Test match points total and claiming their first series win over Australia since 1989. The Lions were outstanding, scoring 4 fabulous tries and dominating up front in one of the greatest Lions victories of all time, with ‘Man of the Series’ Leigh Halfpenny also scoring the most points ever in a Lions Test.

Action from every game in Australia, extended highlights of each Test plus a bonus disc of the record-breaking third and final Test match in full - this is the amazing story of the victorious British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013.
