App Summary

With the British & Irish Lions Tour kicking off this month the avid rugby fan needs to scrum down with all the latest news as it happens. This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Lions so the action is set to be as committed and passionate as you’d expect on such a landmark and the guys wearing the jersey don’t want to let the home nations down. This app is the official place to find out all about the squad as they head over to Hong Kong and Australia.


The Good

As well as all the news updates you’d expect from an official app, the rugby-loving discerning gent can satisfy his need for knowledge on all things rugby in the build up to matches with player profiles & interviews from Warren Gatland’s squad, quick links to follow players’ Twitter accounts, fixture details and profiles of Lions Legends. Another neat addition is the ability to pick your very own starting 15 for each game. Finally a fan can also win the opportunity to meet the team and interview former Lions Legend Will Greenwood. Read Will’s thoughts when he spoke to Elysium Magazine ahead of the Lions Tour.


The Bad

Live streaming of each match would have been a great addition to this app and would complete the experience for the discerning gent who is constantly on the move.



A great app for the devote rugby fan in a summer which has the potential to deliver some truly amazing contests for the British & Irish Lions. If you can’t be there yourself this app puts you in the heart of the action.


Score: 8/10
