Not bad at all.
Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones became only the seventh player in history to win Lions Tests against New Zealand, Australia and South Africa thanks to his side’s win in Wellington on Saturday.
Up until 1997 Wales second row Rhys Williams and Irish wing Tony O’Reilly were the only men to have achieved this particular treble.
But they were joined by Ieuan Evans, Jeremy Guscott and Jason Leonard in 1997 when all three helped down South Africa having also won Tests against New Zealand in 1993 and Australia in 1989.
Martin Johnson then joined them in 2001 with a Test win over in Australia have been involved in the two tours previous. A very exclusive club altogether.
