ESPNclassic: At home with the Invincibles - Part 3
To correspond with the 2009 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa, ESPN Scrum brings you part three of a six-part video series featuring the pride of Lions - the 1974 "Invincibles".

The 1974 tourists were unbeaten on South African soil - winning 21 games including three Test matches before drawing the fourth and final Test against a fearsome Springbok side.
