We read a lot about the upcoming British and Irish Lions tour. If it is still not clear if it will happen, the pressure starts to increase across the channel. After the formalization of the staff ization, everyone is waiting for one thing: the announcement of the team of players selected by Warren Gotland.
Meanwhile, supporters were able to see what the Lions jersey would look like. Surprise: This is red! What is the main difference with the tunic from the 2017 tour? The size of the white collar, in 2021, is very small. Another difference is that the sleeve ends are Irish green on the right, Scottish blue on the left and English white on both sides.
The jersey was donated by former captain Sam Warburton.

The box jersey will also be very classic. The return of Springbok is on the chest, but on the right, surrounded by a badge with the reference “2021”.
We say, sports fans! Which is better, a box jersey or a Lions jersey? pic.twitter.com/yhOiV4z7Wo

As he passed, Sam Warburton reportedly gave the name of the man he was hiring to captain the team Rugby pass. This is Alon Vin Johnson, not the Englishman Maro Itoje.
