The Lions: When The Going Gets Tough
By Sir Ian McGeechan with Steve James
(Hodder & Stoughton, May 2017)

2017 sees the latest contest between the British Lions and New Zealand – the ultimate rugby clash between the northern and southern hemisphere. Sir Ian McGeechan is the ‘Ultimate Lion’, and no one could have done more than McGeechan to promote the magic of the Lions.

McGeechan played for the Lions in their unbeaten 1974 tour of South Africa, and again in the 1977 tour of New Zealand. Subsequently he has been the head coach on four Lions tours.

In this unique and fascinating book which celebrates the immensity of rugby at the top level, Sir Ian McGeechan uses his own coaching notes to provide his special insight and background into what it means to be a Lion. By looking at various themes such as selection, how to create the right environment and how to build the players into what he describes as ‘Test-match animals’, the reader learns how some of the most successful Lions tours in history were built. Writing always with passion for his various themes it is easy to see how he inspired his players to extraordinary physical endeavour.
