Fylde-born Harry Eagles played 35 on the inaugural British & Lions Tour, which saw them go to Australia and New Zealand in 1888.

A powerful forward, Eagles started out at Crescent RFC before switching to Salford – where he impressed and was quickly picked for the Lancashire county side.

Eagles was picked to play in all three games for the North of England against the South of England – while he also won caps for Lancashire.

He played 35 games in total on the inaugural Lions Tour, scoring 15 tries including a famous double against the NSW Waratahs.
