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".
Ian McGeechan, skipper Willie-John McBride, prop Mike Burton and back-rows Roger Uttley and Andy Ripley continue to reminisce over their most successful of tours, with Burton holding court and relaying stories of the squad's acclimatisation in South Africa.
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.
Stay tuned to ESPN Scrum for part four of the series on Thursday, June 11 or Click Here to catch up on parts one and two.
