Ahead of the 2021 British and Irish Lions test series against South Africa, Brian Moore is sitting down with former players and coaches to discuss some of the memories which have made the Lions become the institution it is today.

In our fourth and final instalment, Brian speaks to former England second row Simon Shaw who went on three Lions Tours, including two to South Africa, but had to wait until the age of 35 and his final two appearances in red to make a test match appearance.

Shaw's appearance in the second test has gone down in Lions folklore as one of the finest ever seen in a test shirt, despite ultimately ending up on the losing side.
