The first post-war Lions tour saw the parties morale at extremly high levels, due to the extended break afforded to the players before the start of ther tour.
The tour also marked the first occasions that the Lions played in their now famous red shirts (to avoid a clash with New Zealand as had occured in the 1930 matches).
The first test saw the Lions draw in unfortunate circumstances with a last gasp try by the All Blacks giving them an even share of the spoils.
Throughout the next two tests the All Blacks ran riot through the Lions pack and clinched the seies before the final test had been started, but even so the Lions were confident that they could win the final test, but alas the New Zealand defence held firm to win the fourth and final test.
