The players certainly must feel proud of themselves and as a fan it was remarkable to see the team pull together and almost become men instead of boys through the tour. This tour was not marred by bickering and pre-madonna behaviour by players or staff.

The tour had a massive following and it was great to see players (some of whom are nearly on a cool Million a year) mingiling with fans, offering those who pay for the tour the chance to meet with players and a real insight into what goes on behind the tour.

The general feeling in the UK and Ireland is a job well done and we cant wait to get out there and see off the Kiwis, what a tour that will be and no doubt it will already be in the back of players and fans minds alike. It is by no means cheap to follow the Lions, even a Sky package at home isnt cheap, but the quality of Rugby and inspirational moments offered are unsurpassed.

The Australians can also be proud of themselves playing some great rugby and with fans that supported them throughout, the sport is huge in Australia with massive stadiums and passionate fans. One day im sure Rugby in the UK will reach its full potential.

The support staff of th Lions kept the team rolling from venue to venue and repaired,stitched and healed players as they came through their bruising encounters. Im sure Players, Staff and Fans will remember this tour for years to come and a congratulations goes out to them all.
