Lions must continue legacy in New Zealand

Retired wing Jason Robinson has reminded those that represent the British & Irish Lions in 2017 of the legacy they must look to leave when pulling on the red shirt.

Robinson played on two tours, including the Lions’ last jaunt to New Zealand – the team’s next destination in two years time – winning five caps.

The 40-year-old World Cup winner cherishes his memories and wants future Lions to create new ones for themselves and the army of travelling supporters.

“When people are speaking about the Lions, guys who have been there and done it, you can feel the passion, you can see it in their eyes,” said Robinson.

“To go out there to see great rugby, to have those experiences as well is unbelievable.”

And Sir Ian McGeechan – head coach on four Lions tours, masterminding series wins in both Australia and South Africa – reiterates Robinson’s sentiment.

“Make sure when people think about the Lions they think: ‘good’,” said the 68-year-old, who also played on two tours.

“The legacy is for the players to pick up in four years time, please give them something to play for and something to understand.”
