A hugely memorable Tour was 1997, their second victory in South Africa from 100 years of trying. This was one of the Lions greatest tactical successes as they won the Test series 2-1. Defeated by Australia in 2001 and then South Africa in 2009, the Lions came roaring back and were triumphant in Australia in 2013 to then seal a dramatic draw series in New Zealand.
