Welcome to "Boys on Tour"

Lions 2017? - Nah.. we've all grown up now !!!
Remember the old days of "what goes on tour stays on tour", well thanks to the internet we can now share these memories with a few million more..
This site is dedicated to the memory of touring with the British & Irish Lions 2005.  We shall be including some "VERY" interesting photos, text diary notes and videos of what a Boy really get's up to on tour.  Both Kiwi's, Welsh, Irish & English alike will be joining us on tour...  Might let a token Scot in somewhere just like Sir Clive did.  "The Boys" are veterans of many tours all around the world and felt duty bound to report what's going on.
The general feeling is that it's a good thing that "Sir" Clive is retiring to the round ball sport.  Hopefully Andy Robinson will fall on his sword too, to give England a chance of winning the World Cup in 2007.
"Our" interview with Brian O'Driscoll
"If I see those cheating boys again (Tana Umaga & Keven Mealamu) then I going to give them one of these!"


The "All Blacks" dominated the set pieces and broken play, were brilliant on attack and defence, were fast,  strong and accurate, showed they could tackle, run, pass, jink, side step and swerve BUT apart from that we were left thinking; "what else can they do?"
