A Pride of Lions presented by Genesis Publications

To celebrate the British Isles tour to New Zealand in the summerof 2009, the Museum of Rugby had on display a definitive exhibition about the Lions.  

The Lions are the touring side of the British Isles. Players from all four of the Home Unions, England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, can be selected. The side consists of the very best available players from these four proud rugby-playing nations.

The Lions have a tradition and history like no other. The tours of the great southern hemisphere rugby nations are eagerly anticipated and provided some of the most memorable clashes ever seen. Off the field of play, their impact has been just as strong.

To produce a full history of the Lions in a single exhibition would be impossible. Each individual Lions tour influenced the rugby world in its own way. Instead, ‘A Pride of Lions’ picked out and examined the elements that make the Lions different and so very special.  

This exhibition was on display at the Museum of Rugby until September 4, 2005.
