As one of the oldest rugby clubs in Ireland, it should come as no surprise that the history of Wanderers F.C. is interwoven deep in the fabric of The British & Irish Lions.
Founded in 1870 by a group of former Trinity College players at Dublin University, the club has produced more than a dozen men who have gone on to wear the famous red jersey.
From the likes of Andrew Clinch, Thomas Crean and Robert Johnston on the 1896 Tour to 1959 Tour captain Ronnie Dawson, Wanderers and the Lions have enjoyed a long association.
Wanderers can also count legendary five-time Lions tourist Mike Gibson among their illustrious list of names, having followed in Dawson’s footsteps after beginning his senior career at the club.
Then there’s Wanderers legend and Ireland flanker Phil Matthews, who pulled on the famous red jersey for the Lions in their 1989 centenary celebration match against France in Paris.
Canterbury’s partnership with The British & Irish Lions recognises the 724 clubs globally that have developed, nurtured, & fostered the 824 British & Irish Lions
