New Lions documentary out this weekend

A new documentary following the Great Britain Lions Rugby League tour down under in 2019 is launched this weekend on the BBC iPlayer with Rhinos stars Rhyse Martin and Konrad Hurrell included along with former Leeds stars John Bentley, Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Jamie Peacock giving their insight into the tour.

The tour marked the return of the famous Great Britain touring with historic games against Tonga and Papua New Guinea sandwiching two Tests against New Zealand Kiwis.

Through unseen archive, interviews and privileged actuality, the film highlights the most compelling aspects of Rugby League’s rise, and explores how and why it has come to be synonymous with a way of life, all within the band-of-brothers framework of the reformed GB RL Lions’ exploits down under.
