Thunderous rugby from two inspired teams so evenly matched they could barely be separated

This was a war of attrition - one of the most physical and competitive Lions tours in living memory.

The British and Irish Lions headed for Australia, fully aware of the enormous task that lay ahead - to take on the world conquering Wallabies in their own backyard.

As the nation held it's breath and the deciding Test went down to the final minute, the Australians - world champions, tri-nations champions and undisputed rugby union elite - took their chances and edged out a phenomenal Lions team.

In Battle Down Under is a unique chance to see the incredible action from all seven provincial matches as well as extended highlights from the three Tests on this momentous tour.

The Lions rocked the Australians and racked up an incredible tally of 449 points, scoring 59 tries and conceding only 184 points as they toured rugby's toughest nation.

This is a complete record of the colossal rugby played in Australia on the 2001 Lions Tour - a battle we shall never forget.
