Quiz: Name the Lions’ starting XV from the first test against Australia in 2001


The British and Irish Lions ultimately lost the test series to Australia in 2001, but they got off to a fantastic start in the first game in Brisbane.

The world champion Wallabies were the favourites heading into the game, as the Lions were rocked by injuries and management disputes, but the visitors stunned the hosts to pull off an unlikely 16-point win.

The game is well remembered by fans, with one try in particular standing out, but naming every member of the starting team may prove to be a little bit more difficult.

That’s the question we’re asking today at Pundit Arena, as we look back on that famous day Down Under. Like most of our quizzes, you’ll have five minutes to guess every answer. Good luck!
