British Lions 2017 Shirt - How and Why its made !

The British and Irish Lions kit might no longer be made of cotton, and it might have sponsorship badges sewn on, but it still carries the same connotations it always has done, a mark that the player wearing it has got to the top of their game, and is playing at the highest possible level.
