Quiz: Two Men Have Played For And Against The Lions – Can You Name Them?


The Lions take on Super Rugby outfit the Blues tomorrow in the second match of their tour of New Zealand tomorrow. Warren Gatland has made 15 changes to the team who overcame the Provincial Barbarians on Saturday, and a bit of history is set to be made in Eden Park.

The Lions will feature Jared Payne at second centre and Elliot Daly on the wing. Interestingly for the rugby nerds amongst us, the duo will become the third and fourth players in the professional era to have played for and against the Lions (Tom Reid played for the Lions in 1955 and against them four years later).

Both lined out for the Barbarians in 2013, when the Baa-baas fell to Gatland’s Australia-bound party 59-8 in Hong Kong.


However, can you name the other two players who have also played for and against the Lions in the professional era?

We’ll give you a slight clue; who they played for, and what year they toured with the British and Irish Lions.

Best of luck!
