The 2009 British and Irish Lions Tour of South Africa will go down as one of the great series. The three test matches between the World Champions and the most famous of all touring sides provided some of the greatest moments in recent rugby history.
The Springboks were hell bent on revenge after suffering series defeat to the Lions in 1997. The Lions were seeking their first tour victory since that triumph 12 years earlier.
The result was three matches of furious intensity and extraordinary drama.
The first test in Durban started with an explosion of South African points - the hosts powering ahead before the Lions launched a magnificent comeback, almost snatching the game.
The second test in Pretoria will be remembered as one of the great matches. The Lions led from the start - they dominated and should have won. They lost. Defeat due to the exceptional determination of the Boks and a last minute penalty from the halfway line - Incredible.
So to Johannesburg and the final test. The home side set to claim a majestic clean sweep against what would surely be a beaten and bruised foe. Instead the Lions rose up in mighty defiance to deliver a performance full of courage, heart and flair. They stormed to a stirring triumph against all the odds to complete a quite sensational series.
The series might have been lost but McGeechan's class of 09 will not easily be forgotten. Enjoy all three epic test matches in full in this Lions box set. Every moment from every test match - all you will ever need as a permanent reminder of a classic series.
