New British & Irish Lions coach confirmed as Ian McGeechan

New British & Irish Lions coach confirmed as Ian McGeechan

It's official, after many names were thrown around with plenty of speculation, Ian McGeechan has been announced as the man who will take the head coach role for the prestigious British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa next year.

McGeechan is more than qualified for the position, having been in charge three times previously, namely in 1989, '93 and '97, as well as being involved with the unbeaten midweek team in 2005.

He was also a Lion twice as a player, in 1974 and '77, so is no stranger to the concept of bringing together the elite from England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

The general feeling is that this role is made for McGeechan, and with the coach now confirmed, preparations, albeit planning at this stage, will begin and we should be set for a humdinger of a series in the World Champions' backyard in exactly a year from now.
