British & Irish Lions tour - Scrum Safari 3

The 2009 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa will forever be remembered as one of the toughest in the history of the sport. On the field, bruising encounters and tense finishes were the order of the day.

Off the field, plenty of hard work is put in to get to that starting Test side, but there's still time to relax and unwind, which is just as important on a tension filled tour such as this.

On this edition of the BBC's Scrum Safari, we catch up with the Lions players after the second Test of the series, as they attempt to wind down and take their mind off the disappointments of a gruelling tour.

The Lions went on a safari and get quizzed about the Big Five, a question to which most of them fail. We also get a behind the scenes peak at what's on the menu for the players, and then we see the guys back in Johannesburg, heading to the movies for the night.

It's then back to the ever loyal fans, who throughout the tour have been fantastic with their support for their side. Telly Tubbies, Cheerleaders, and Lions, we've seen it all on this tour. Enjoy.

Time: 05:26



  • So can anyone, without peeking, still name the big five?

  • rhino, buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion

    but im kinda cheating cos Im an environmental biologist


    its not actually names after the biggest five animals, but the fav animals of hunters to kill back in the day (I believe)

  • Grow up you two.
    Itll be a while til either England or Wales get in the top 5 with the way Ireland and France are shaping up

  • BIG 5??
    give a quick look on the official IRB rankings there kids! :P

  • Historic Big 5 would certainly be:

    New Zealand
    South Africa

    This video is quite fun to watch. Seems that lions, so british and irish gathered, enjoy theirselves.

    So i still don't understand why ireland, england, scotland and wales always say that their hate each other during 6 nations;
    and in other way, for example, lions series, seem to be galvanized by an "united" spirit

    Sometimes, i wonder if it's real or fake...

    What? What's that based on? World Cups? Duh. You can't just announce that something is 'historical' when it clearly is not. Are you a tabloid journalist by chance?

  • Anyone know the name of the track in the background? They used to play it all the time in Frnace/Spain during summer hols and always wondered what it was... Cheers

  • Watched sky news last night for the Lions "homecoming" to Heathrow, not one shot of an Irish player, no interview with Paul O'Connell but loads of interviews with English players though. Cant wait til Six Nations time again to stuff them !!!!

  • To Doyle,

    based on world cups..
    it's not tabloid, it is just facts

    By Blogger Flooz, at July 08, 2009 10:52 am  

  • Doyle, I think it's pretty obvious that is the top 5. It's just common sense really.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 08, 2009 11:31 am  

  • i think with jonny wilkinson back in the team, england could do very well.

    9) care
    10) wilko
    11) cueto
    12) tindall..... maybe
    13) tait
    14) monye
    15) armitage

    not a bad backline

  • the track is:

    salif keita - mada

    salif keita is from mali, I believe.
    btw, anyone understood what mcgeechan said?? I didnt..

  • why havent they interviewed john hayes on these clips he is obviously the funniest man on the tour and all the other players think he is great. instead of interviewing boring welshmen they should get john hayes cracking jokes!!

    if the big five were based on the quality of players that a country produces instead of results ireland would top it surely!

    By Anonymous john hayes best player ever, at July 08, 2009 1:57 pm  

  • I was hoping those two twats dressed in the "Zulu Dawn" uniforms (5 min mark in the video)would get a spear in the back !!!

  • Big Five

    New Zealand
    South Africa

  • Ha - love it. I knew starting the big five debate with a list of teams would spark a few comments.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 08, 2009 5:39 pm  

  • Anonymous that's not a bad backline, but it's not a good one either. Did anyone else think Ron Kearney seemed like a great guy in this?

    By Anonymous Kearney for tests, at July 08, 2009 8:01 pm  

  • RoB Kearney I mean.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 08, 2009 8:01 pm  

  • Flooz,
    haha I knew it, you are an imbacile. Why not check the facts? If you were basing a list of the top 5 rugby nations on world cups alone the list would read;
    1. Australia
    2. South Africa
    3. England
    4. New Zealand
    5. France
    Check it out now before you type more nonsense. This is the factual list based on how many times a team has been champion, runner up, third and fourth placed. The fact that you put New Zealand at the top is the most laughable point of all:))

    Again, maybe check your facts. Why don't you check the history of the world cup?

    By Anonymous Doyle, at July 09, 2009 12:30 am  

  • Doyle.

    You cannot rank teams on world cup wins?

    Does your club rank itself on one cup win or where it finished in it's regular league?

    The latter I think.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 09, 2009 1:03 pm  

  • To above, they're national teams so there is no league you muppet. The only competition between all the nations is the world cup. Silly boy.
