111: 1997 Lions Tour - Everest Belongs To Telfer

On this week's podcast Cammy and John are joined by Bruce Aitchison from Happiness Is Eggshaped to take a look at the 1997 Living With Lions documentary. We take a look at a fascinating time for rugby with the amateur game giving way to professionalism which produced a unique tour the likes of which we will never see again.


We discuss what lessons future Lions teams can learn from the tour, why McGeechan and Telfer are coaching GOATs as well as THAT speech.


The documentary is available to purchase and download on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Living-Lions-Sir-Ian-McGeechan/dp/B0733RZZSD
