Colin Deans impressed in a British & Irish Lions jersey on the 1983 Tour to New Zealand, scoring tries in consecutive matches prior to the fourth Test.
But the Scottish hooker was surprisingly kept on the bench for the entirety of the Test series, as the All Blacks triumphed 4-0 against the tourists.
Deans did captain the Lions in their 1986 contest against a Rest of the World XV at Cardiff Arms Park, as part of the IRB’s centenary celebrations, with ‘The Rest’ edging that game 15-7.
