Will the Lions Tour go ahead?

That is a very worrying question right now.  

For the sake of Rugby and to support South African Rugby I hope it does go ahead and I hope that things will be ok for the crowds to be allowed to attend the matches...........

Why wouldn’t it go ahead now?

Is the ESL privatising the tour?

The Lions may not risk travelling................

Says who?

Well the Rainbow cup just got cancelled, but it was circling the drain for a while. 

That said, there may be a slim chance of it going ahead, but it all depends on the UK government and whether they will permitted to travel abroad which is only to be confirmed in June. 

South Africa is also on the red list, so unless the criteria is met, I don't think it will go ahead

Korn, have you got a link to an article or something actually confirming the cancellation of the Rainbow Cup?

South Africa is on the UK Red List.

Somehow a bit disturbing - Who are the UK Kidding - Their performance during Civid has been absolutely pathetic - So we have a region overlooking their own bullshit but having the cheek to assess another as a danger zone.

This one of the reasons why Covid has got out of control - Human bullshit.

But I feel that it will kill the tour.

"But I feel that it will kill the tour.  "

Unfortunately...and unnecessary so, but I agree with you. They will stop it, regardless of the vax rollout....overstating the danger exponentially.

I was in a restaurant in Florida last night.....it seemed fairly normal. Tables were set well apart though and you had to wear a mask until seated. The Wagyu beef tasted great and everybody felt relaxed. Normality!

The big concern now is this massive Indian spike, something I always feared and something which could breed dangerous variants.

This series must go ahead...a safe way to play the games can be found.

It was announced today that no travelling Lions fans can attend the series but they are hopeful some local fans will be cleared to attend.

I suspect that is another step in the direction of the tour being cancelled.

Well, the players have been given the green light to attend the training camp and play in the warm up against Japan, so it’s looking rather likely the Tour will go ahead at this stage !

Really hope so. We need some good news and good rugby.

Squad is due to be selected on 6th May, so things are still going ahead this end.
