Jason Robinson

Lift-off! Jason Robinson celebrates after scoring for the Lions against Australia in Brisbane in 2001

WALES FULL-BACK Leigh Halfpenny watched the Living with Lions video that followed the 1997 tour to South Africa countless times and remembers the 2001 trip to Australia well too. Here are his three top Lions memories from those tours…

1. South Africa v Lions, Second Test, 1997

“I remember Scott Gibbs running over Os du Randt – that was one of my highlights.”

2. Australia v Lions, First Test 2001

“That Brian O’Driscoll try was incredible. He went through a gap that wasn’t even there; he had no right to go through and then he ran 40-50 yards to score.”

3. Australia v Lions, First Test 2001

“Another real highlight was Jason Robinson gassing Chris Latham in the space of five yards, if that, and going in at the corner.”
