As the dust settles on a memorable series between the British and Irish Lions and Australia, we bring you all the best of the action, reaction and opinion over the course of the tour.


The Lions, under the guidance of head coach Warren Gatland, finished the Test series with an historic 2-1 triumph.

And their overall record was played 10, won eight and lost just two - to the Brumbies and to Australia in the second Test.

There might be four years to wait until the Lions are next in action - with New Zealand their next destination - however you can relive every moment of their 2013 tour right here.
