The last two Tours to Australia have delivered two closely fought series. The 1989 Lions came back from defeat in the opening Test match to win the series 2-1 with a 19-18 victory against the Wallabies in the final game.
In 2001, more than 25,000 Lions fans jetted Down Under to be enthralled by another great series. This time Jason Robinson's iconic opening try in the first Test saw the Lions defeat the Wallabies before the series was decided in the final game, with Australia edging it 29-23 to take the crown.
Two great teams, one great country - the Lions Tour in 2013 promises to deliver memories that will last a lifetime.
