Signed Lions rugby shirt and book go un­der the ham­mer

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - AUCTIONS -

TWO items of rugby mem­o­ra­bilia – one unique, one ex­tremely rare – are up for auc­tion in North­ern Ire­land on Satur­day night.

A framed Bri­tish Lions shirt, signed by a host of Ul­ster Lions, in­clud­ing leg­ends Wil­lie John McBride and Syd Mil­lar, and re­cent Lion, Stephen Fer­ris, is the main at­trac­tion.

Also un­der the ham­mer is Kings Of Rugby, a lim­ited-edi­tion book of the 1959 Lions tour to New Zealand which is signed by all 43 re­main­ing Lions and All Blacks.

The boxed, lim­ited edi­tion vo l u m e – o n ly 5 0 0 we re printed – de­tails the story of the record-break­ing 1959 tour.

Both items are be­ing auc­tioned at a fund-rais­ing din­ner for the Lur­gan Col­lege rugby team’s Canada tour in June. – Belfast Tele­graph
