Every match from the British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa is exclusively live on Sky Sports; fans who don’t have Sky will be able to catch all the action via streaming service NOW, which offers day/monthly passes; watch the Sharks vs Lions on Wednesday, live on Action and Main Event


On this week’s Will Greenwood Lions podcast, he welcomes the Beast and Raging Bull: otherwise known as former Springbok Tendai Mtawarira and ex-England and Lions prop Phil Vickery…

On the latest episode, former loosehead Mtawarira and tighthead Vickery chat – surprise, surprise – scrums, scrums and more scrums.

The duo also delve into the now infamously physical 2009 Lions series in South Africa and Tendai’s personal battle with Phil in the first Test. Vickery also reflects on the emotion of his re-selection in the third Test.


Both World Cup winners, the pair discuss respective tournament victories and the importance the scrum played in both: Vickery in 2003; Mtawarira in 2019.

Finally, the Beast and Raging Bull pick their dream front-fives to play with and who they think will line up in the front row in the Boks vs Lions first Test in Cape Town.

Will Greenwood is hosting a weekly Lions podcast ahead of Warren Gatland’s tourists taking on the world champion Springboks over the summer – all the games from the 2021 tour will be shown live on Sky Sports.
