To coincide with the British & Irish Lions' tour of Australia, and in association with Dove Men+Care, we asked you to vote on our short-list of greatest Lions moments of the professional era - and the results are now in.
Here's how you voted - but we anticipate a call for a re-count after the most recent tour served up a host of thrilling scores, performances and controversies:
Best Lions Test try: - Where would George North's first Test try against the Wallabies rank?
Best Test try against the Lions: - Where would Israel Folau's first try in the opening Test rank?
Greatest controversy: - Where would the alleged stamp by Wallabies captain James Horwill rank?
Greatest Test: - Where would the Lions' third Test rout of the Wallabies rank?
Greatest Lion: - Would Leigh Halfpenny make this list now?
Greatest tour: - The Lions' victory over South Africa in 1997 stands the test of time
