HSBC Lions Monthly - Squad Announcement Special

It's been an eventful week for Lions fans as the tour party and captain for the 2013 British & Irish Lions tour of Australia this June and July was announced. Following on from that, the latest edition of HSBC’s Lions Monthly is now available.

This latest edition features a summary of the news and views in the build-up to the tour, including behind the scenes footage of the official squad announcement press conference. We also hear from Lions veteran Brian O'Driscoll following his inclusion in the squad, for a fourth consecutive tour.

On this year's tour we'll hear from players behind the scenes, as well as get updates regularly, bringing fans who aren't able to go, closer to the action.

For those who are planning to visit Australia, or haven't quite decided yet, we hear from former Lions legends Gavin Hastings and Jason Robinson, as well as dual code Welsh rugby legend Jonathan Davies, on where the best spots to visit are.

This month's episode features:

- Behind the scenes of the recent squad announcement press conference filmed live from Syon House outside London on Tuesday

- Former captain Brian O'Driscoll gives his views on the squad and tells us how he’s realised he’s now the oldest in the squad for his fourth tour

- Jason Robinson, Gavin Hastings, Jonathan Davies and Brian O’Driscoll take us through what it’s like out in Australia and things to do when not watching the rugby
