The Prize

Special memento from the 2009 Lions Tour to South Africa from the Lions official archive. Signed by the 2009 Lions squad.

The 2009 Tour was an epic one as the Lions were undone by the slightest of margins against South Africa.

One of the best British & Irish Lions sides to lose a Test series – Brian O’Driscoll, Paul O’Connell and Jamie Roberts were its lifeblood and at its epicentre was Sir Ian McGeechan.

The epic first Test was a 26-21 loss with Paul O’Connell leading his troops out in front of a bustling crowd at the ABSA Stadium which included a supreme Sea of Red.

The Sunday Times’ Stephen Jones called Simon Shaw’s performance at Loftus in the second Test the greatest by a forward anywhere, ever. With Shaw, O’Connell, David Wallace and the all-Welsh front-row immense up front, Stephen Jones was impeccable with the boot and the Lions led 19-8. But history had other things in mind and it proved to be a case of so near, yet so far, as Bryan Habana and Jaque Fourie turned the tide before Morne Steyn broke Lions hearts in a 28-25 Springbok success.

McGeechan restored pride to the red jersey with a 28-9 final Test win, as Shane Williams scored two tries to seal the Lions first Test success since 2001.
