Life of a Lion: Harry Eagles

As one of ‘The Originals’ who went on the inaugural Tour to Australia and New Zealand more than 130 years ago, Harry Eagles holds a unique place in British & Irish Lions folklore.

Not only was the Fylde-born forward among the 22-man travelling party who embarked on the voyage for the 249-day trip, he played all 35 games on the pioneering 1888 Tour.
