    Without the cash injection from the Lions Tour every 12 years, the SH Unions involved, would probably go belly up.
    The Euro Lions tours would still tour and generate the same amount of money.

      With England beating Aus in a series(for the first time) and Ireland nearly beating SA in a series (and may do yet) - even the most loyal Lions supporters must admit there is something of a credibility problem?

      These are changing times - Ireland alone are a significant rugby power - why not move with the times and break the old boys network.Give Grorgia and Italy et al a slice of the pie.

      We are now in the ridiculous situation where we have to talk up the Southern Hemisphere countries at our own expense to keep the Lions relevant.

        You have no idea how much it would generate, none whatsoever

          It's just the Nigelification of the Lions. Would be completely pointless.

            Why would it be any less?

            At least the same appeal- and guaranteed the best players in the world - in every match. No lame duck Lions tours(in rugby terms) like the last one which followed Ireland beating Aus on their own in the world cup.

              Great, lets just blame the English.

              The Unions could control matters - just as now.

                Because the world's biggest sponsors queue up for the rights to sponsor one of the games greatest events. It's a money spinner on a global level. Your mockayeah tournament wouldn't come close. Georgia and Italy ffs

                  So you dont think a Euro Lions team, playing against NZ, AUS, SA and Argentina would be a money spinner? The best players in the world in every (Euro) Lions series playing against each other - why the feck not?

                    The reasons are all above if you bother to read people's responses.

                      Would the Lions attract any major Italian or Georgian sponsors (particularly if they had very few, if any players involved). Most of their players play in France and those likely to travel would play in the top French clubs and so would be involved in Top 14 play-offs.

                      It would be just simpler if the B&I Lions just gave the Georgian & Italian Unions a cut of their income.

                        Yeah. Why don't they just give money to the GAA too while they are at it

                          In case you hadn't noticed there is massive TV money and interest in France in rugby who are excluded from the Lions for not being currently or previously British.

                            No one has said why a Euro Lions team playing under the Lions banner which is more inclusive, has better players and would be playing against stronger opposition would suddenly become less commercially attractive.

                            The host Southern Hemisphere countries would take it in turns to have the tours - just as now.
