Lions Legends Preview South Africa 2009

Posted on: 20 October 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Brian O'Driscoll and Jason Robinson look ahead to the British Lions tour to South Africa next year.

Brian O’Driscoll and Jason Robinson are two of the finest ever rugby union players the British Isles have produced – men who have performed miracles in the colours of Ireland and England respectively and also produced fine performances for the British and Irish Lions.

Both made their British Lions debut in the 2001 tour of Australia with glittering performances but as in 2005's trip to New Zealand, neither have been part of a successful Lions series win. 

They have been taking part in a series of HSBC Rugby Festival’s offering their training tips to the next generation of rugby stars.

Aswell as talking about these festivals, in this interview Brian and Jason talk about their Lions memories and look ahead to the 2009 tour in South Africa, which is now under 12 months away.

Who should captain the 2009 British Lions touring squad? Who would you play at fly half? Can Jonny Wilkinson recover from his latest injury setback to make the squad?
