Brian's Lions: Alex Corbisiero

Monday, 7 June

Ahead of the 2021 British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa Brian Moore is sitting down with former players and coaches to discuss some of the memories which have made the Lions become the institution it is today.

For the third instalment, Brian speaks to former England prop Alex Corbisiero about what it's like to join a Lions Tour late, and how you have to force your way into a settled squad.

Alex details his experience in 2013 of finding out he had missed out on selection, then being told he had to make the three-day trip from Argentina to Australia before establishing himself as the starting loosehead prop for the test series.
