The Prize

Special memento from the 1989 Tour courtesy of Ieuan Evans' personal collection.

Evans played in three Lions Tours in 1989, 1993 and 1997. In that time he earned six Test caps in 20 appearances. Among his most memorable moments was scoring the decisive Series-winning try in the third Test against Australia in 1989.

In 1989, the Lions travelled solely to Australia for the first time since 1899. The first Tour to resemble a modern day Lions schedule, the 1989 party played just 12 games in Australia during their six-week sojourn. The Lions lived up to their name and mauled their opponents, winning 11 of 12 matches and taking the Test Series 2-1.

The tourists were managed by former Wales captain and coach Clive Rowlands, coached by Lions legend Sir Ian McGeechan and had an assistant manager in Roger Uttley for the first time. Coach McGeechan had toured twice with The Lions as a player, including being part of the 1974 Invincibles that went the entire Tour of South Africa unbeaten. The Tour got off to a strong start with a 44-0 drubbing of Western Australia and a 23-8 victory over Australia B.

The Series was a tight affair with the Lions losing the first encounter in Sydney before coming back to level things in Brisbane and taking the final game by a single point back in Sydney. In doing so, Captain Finlay Calder’s side became the first Lions side to win a Series after losing the opening Test.
