Building the future

As a mutual, people and sharing responsibility for building a better future, are at our heart. We know the positive impact that sport can play across our communities in the UK and Ireland, so we’re proud to support the Lions tour this year through the uncertain climate brought about by COVID-19. We're looking forward to the tour in South Africa across July and August.

Levelling the playing field

We also understand the importance of fairness in sport, so we’re excited to invest in the future of women’s rugby in the UK and Ireland by supporting research and analysis that could help it continue to grow.

We believe in the power of acting in collective interests, so using the combined power of Royal London and the Lions, we’re launching a study that will consider whether a women's Lions team could be established. Through our partnership we aim to make a positive impact on the continued success of women’s rugby.

Together, we can make a real difference.

We spoke to Lions legend and current chairman, Jason Leonard, and former England international and World Cup winner, Maggie Alphonsi about the importance of our partnership. They discuss how we can help grow the women’s game and ask them to pick their Ultimate Lion.
