The 2021 British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa has finished. There were five tour matches and three tests played against the Springboks.

Stan Sports, who had been lapping up rugby TV rights left and right, also secured the exclusive streaming rights to the Lions tour of South Africa – including all eight matches.

While the matches themselves were at truly terrible timezones for Australian fans, Stan Sport allowed you to watch on-demand replays of its rugby matches too.
