Q4: Whom has Warren Gatland succeeded as the most recent Lions' (Head) Coach to have drawn a Test series?

 

Q3: How many Lions TESTS did Willie John McBride play before he tasted victory in one?

 

Q2: Who is the most recent player to start a Lions’ TEST before he had started a test for his country?

There will be further questions from Elsa added to the front page as the tour wears on.

The accuracy of your answer will be evaluated by Graham Hughes, so TOKS has no chance of winning the prize!

Elsa would like some more responses.

I know that Sportnetwork has been about as reliable as Jason Roy recently, but we don't want a stroppy lioness, do we?

She has authorised me to inform potential participants, particularly the Taffs, that the answer to Q1 is NOT Chico Hopkins!

Question 2 has now been added!

If you didn't get the first question right, this a great opportunity to haul in the leaders!

Elsa requests some more responses.

She accepts that the first one was tricky, but the second one is more straightforward. Furthermore, anyone who didn't attempt the first one, is entitled to enter an answer to each of the current questions.

Gryff ignored the rubric and posted answers here. As a result, no-one else is allowed to score in respect of those two questions.

Grrr!

HHJ Jeff Blackett, the sole Disciplinary Commissioner for this quiz, has ruled that Gryff's submissions for the first two questions be ruled out, but, due to his impeccable biscuit etiquette, he faces no further sanction. He is therefore free to enter from Question 3 only!

New question posted. You may need to consult a nonagenarian, such as Waldo, for this one!
