- PRL and Lions have been in discussions on new agreement
- Recent tours hampered by late finish to domestic season
The British & Irish Lions are close to receiving a significant boost for the 2025 tour of Australia with Premiership Rugby ready to bring its final forward to accommodate more preparation time for the series against the Wallabies.
A historic agreement between the Lions and PRL requires final approval by various stakeholders, but if it is agreed it would end years of acrimony and improve the tourists’ chances of a first series win in 12 years.
