The 2009 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa will forever be remembered as one of the toughest in the history of the sport. On the field, bruising encounters and tense finishes were the order of the day.
Off the field, plenty of hard work is put in to get to that starting Test side, but there's still time to relax and unwind, which is just as important on a tension filled tour such as this.
On this edition of the BBC's Scrum Safari, we catch up with the Lions players after the second Test of the series, as they attempt to wind down and take their mind off the disappointments of a gruelling tour.
The Lions went on a safari and get quizzed about the Big Five, a question to which most of them fail. We also get a behind the scenes peak at what's on the menu for the players, and then we see the guys back in Johannesburg, heading to the movies for the night.
It's then back to the ever loyal fans, who throughout the tour have been fantastic with their support for their side. Telly Tubbies, Cheerleaders, and Lions, we've seen it all on this tour. Enjoy.
