1983 New Zealand
- Updated: 6th June 2012
Coach: Jim Telfer
The New Zealand tour of 1983 was another tour to forget as the Lions went down to a 4-0 whitewash for only the second time in history.
The tour captained by Ciaran Fitzgerald, coached by Jim Telfer and managed by Willie John McBride suffered a bit of a battering at the hands of the Kiwis after the punishing tour schedule took its toll on the side through injuries.
The Lions looked at one stage in the second test as though they may be able to level the series when they were 9-0 up at half time, but the All Black forward pack played the conditions perfectly to take an unlikely victory and then went on to cruise through the final two tests culminating in their biggest victory ever over the Lions.
