Note Regarded as one of the best Lions side of all time – the tour was a great success, the Lions winning 21 of their 22 matches and drawing the other. After winning the first three test matches, the Lions drew the final test when the South African referee blew the final whistle four minutes early with the Lions two meters from the South African try line, thus preserving their unbeaten record, but denying them a tour whitewash.
