The 2021 British and Irish Lions Tour is in the history books and it's congratulations to South Africa who came from behind to clinch the test series 2-1 with a narrow win in Saturday's deciding test.

Joining Brian once again to dissect the test match and the series as a whole is the former Springbok captain Bob Skinstad.

They discuss where Saturday's clash was won and lost including if the Lions left a number of points on the field after opting against penalty kicks in favour of lineout drives, the missed pass from Liam Williams and the impact of Finn Russell.

Elsewhere Lions chairman Jason Leonard has left the door open for head coach Warren Gatland to return in 2025 for a fourth time. We hear from the Telegraph's chief Rugby Correspondent Gavin Mairs, who says the Lions should be looking to move on from Gatland and that a number of minor tweaks need to be made for the tour to Australia in four years time.

We also discuss our players of the series from both sides, and we look ahead to the Springboks upcoming Rugby Championship campaign.

We discuss what impact Rassie Erasmus incredible mid week press conference had on the referee and if he should be sanctioned for his behaviour.Plus we discuss the comments of All Blacks head coach Ian Foster who says Saturdays test made him fall asleep and a potential return for the influential Duane Vermeulen.Watch 'Doddie Weir: My fight against MND is bigger than ever': https://youtu.be/_B5lBZTKubISee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    It's 1-0 to the British and Irish Lions after the first of their three match test series with South Africa.Joining Brian in studio to discuss the fallout from the opening test is former Springbok captain Bob Skinstad. The pair look back on all the big moments from Saturdays clash in Cape Town, discussing where the game was won and lost.One of the main men on Saturday was the TMO Marius Jonker.
