The British and Irish Lions series with South Africa could be held in the UK and Ireland, according to reports this morning.
According to reports, the first test would be held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, with the other matches held at Twickenham and Wembley in London.
It would represent the unique prospect of rugby fans being able to watch the Lions do titanic battle with the Springboks on home soil.

“My bolter is Wales’s Johnny Williams at inside centre. He impressed me with his physicality and all-round game in the autumn and if he can build on that in the Six Nations then he has a real chance. Toby Flood recently told me how good he thought Williams was when they played together at Newcastle Falcons. His potential is huge.”
