First Test. King's Park, Durban, South Africa
BBC SPORT | Rugby Union | Lions fired up for huge challenge
Every 4 years, a combination of the best rugby players from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales, get together and try to beat one of the Southern Hemisphere teams. This time it is South Africa who welcome their Northern Hemisphere opponents for 3 test matches.
It is right up there with the best of sporting occasions, Superbowl, World Cup Final, etc.
The Lions have already won their 6 warm up games against provincial S.A teams, a couple of them going close. Tomorrow is a whole different ball game.
I'm sorry to say that there is not one Scottish player good enough to be in the team.
Although, the coach is one.
The atmosphere should be electric in King's Park tomorrow. It is not very often the Afrikaners will be outsung on their own ground. There are tens of thousands of Lions supporters travelling down for these games. Fanatastic stuff!!
It is not very often you'll get a mixture of Scots, English, Welsh and Irish in pubs up and down the country all supporting the same team, and no punch ups between them!!
