Finlay Calder holds a unique place in British & Irish Lions history as the only 20th-century captain to lead the team to a series victory after losing the opening Test, doing so in 1989.
Having been defeated 30-12 by Australia in the first Test, Calder – with his steely gaze – was a crucial influence in the subsequent victories in Brisbane and Sydney that ensured a 2-1 series triumph.
The Scottish flanker followed in the footsteps of his brother Jim, who went on the 1983 Tour to New Zealand, making them the only twins to play for the Lions.
