    2017 TOUR SCHEDULE UNVEILED

    Eden Park will host two Tests between the Lions and New Zealand

    The dates and venues have been confirmed for the 2017 British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand.

    After securing an historic series win in Australia two years ago, the Lions will head to the home of the 2011 world champions for ten matches, including the all-important three-match Test series, in the space of just over a month.

    As well as taking on all five of New Zealand's Super Rugby franchises, they will clash with the Maori All Blacks during the tour.

    The first Test will take place at Eden Park, Auckland, on June 24 before the Lions and the All Blacks lock horns in Wellington's Westpac Stadium on July 1.

    Seven days later they will return to Auckland for the third and final clash - bringing what promises to be an action-packed tour to a close.

    In the meantime, keep up to date with the latest news by following @lionsofficial on Twitter and using #NZLions2017

    Well, I hope it's better that the reaming received in 2005.

                  It appears to represent a Provincial Union based in Fangaray.

                    30k in Dunedin is the biggest ground in south island.

                    Too small.

                        Stephen Jones suggests his likely Lions for 2017 team and wider squad at this stage. The following Irish get mentioned:

                        On the team: Jack McGrath, Iain Henderson
                        In squad: Dave Kearney, Robbie Henshaw, Ultan Dillane
                        Also in the frame to be selected: Tommy Bowe, Conor Murray, Ultan Dillane

                        Some other Irish comments: Sexton's star waning, Heaslip would need a major career revival. No other Irish player gets mentioned.

                            Good man Dave Kearney. It proves the old adage that a prophet is not accepted in his hometown. Well, near his hometown anyway ....

                            Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
