RUCK.co.uk looks through the history books and brings you the FIVE greatest players never to wear the Lions jersey.
1. Mike Tindall (England)
Arguably one of England’s most consistent performers of his era, Tindall was a key member of the side that captured the Rugby World Cup crown in 2003. But during his career, which was at times a stop-start affair due to injury, he was never able to go on tour with the Lions.
Did you know: Tindall was named a replacement for the Barbarians against the British and Irish Lions as part of their 2013 tour to Australia.
