1966 Australia & New Zealand

Captain: Mike Campbell-Lamerton
Coach: J.D Robins

The 1966 Lions were talked up before the tour as being one of the best Lions sides ever, but in reality this Lions tour was probably the worst performance by any Lions team over the years.

Even though they secured victory in Australia, they were comprehensively beaten by the All Blacks in all four tests and even struggled in the midweek matches. The tour did end with a win over Canada on the way home, but they were also beaten by British Columbia just immediately prior to that.
