SA Rugby Lions Tour 2021

British & Irish Lions 2021 Fixtures : Will the 2021 Lions tour go ahead?

The much-awaited 2021 Lions tour is due to start with a Test against Japan at BT Murrayfield at the end of June before Warren Gatland’s squad play eight matches, including three Tests, in South Africa in July and August.

However, there has been much speculation about where, or even if, this year’s tour will take place given the global pandemic and ongoing travel restrictions. The fact that new variants of Covid have been identified in the UK and South Africa has only intensified concerns.

Before heading to South Africa, the Lions will play a Test against Japan at BT Murrayfield.
