The British and Irish Lions are back this Summer with a 10-match tour of New Zealand, as they take on the All Blacks in three test matches during June and July.
Returning to New Zealand after 12 years, the Lions kick off the tour on Saturday 3rd June, at the Toll Stadium, Whangarei, where they will take on the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians.
Before taking on the All Blacks on 24th June, the Lions will play a total of six matches against some of New Zealand’s top teams from the Super Rugby competition, including the Blues, Crusaders, Highlanders, Maori All Blacks, and Chiefs – they will then face the Hurricanes before taking on the final two test matches on Saturday 1st July at the Westpac Stadium, Wellington and Saturday 8th July at Eden Park, Auckland.
Join us at Isaacs on the Quay and get behind the British and Irish Lions in an atmosphere that makes you feel right in the middle of the action.
