LEGEND: Sir Ian McGeechan Ranks The 5 Best Lions of all-time

1. Gareth Edwards (Wales)

The scrum-half played ten times for the British and Irish Lions, playing for the 1971 Lions team that was the only such team to win a series in New Zealand, and for the unbeaten 1974 side in South Africa.

McGeechan said: “I think for me being around in in the 70s was a privilege,..hewas the best player I ever saw,”

DID YOU KNOW? In a UK poll conducted by Channel 4 in 2002 British rugby supporters voted Edwards’s historic try for the Barbarians No. 20 in the list of the 100 Greatest Sporting Moments.
