I was just wondering, did the Lions tour South Africa during the apartheid era? I dont think they did. Just want to make sure.

The Lions in South Africa

Post  AdrianHunter on Tue May 05, 2009 7:47 am

The Lions certainly toured in South Africa in 1974 and 1980, which I suppose was during the height of Anti Apartheid feeling.

I am away from home and my reference library at the moment, so this isnt historical fact, but I seem to remember that on one or more of these tours some players refused to tour.

I hope that this gives you somewhere to look! Very Happy

Well, the play is now well over,

What does it all mean in the gretaer picture of the lions history?

Is the whole concept still justified and valid (I think so!) or has professionalism killed the Lions ethos?

Your thaughts and comments appreciated
