The power of 4

Postby Shane » August 7th, 2009, 3:17 pm

Ok, i know its a bit after the fact, but does anyone know what happened to the lions anthem that we had in New Zealand in 2005 - 'the power of four'? I dont think it was a successful experiment to give lions teams an anthem, and they must have ditched it.

were united, hand in hand
together were stronger

From the early '70s the Lions unofficial anthem was 'Flower of Scotland', I think Willie John McBride wanted to introduce an anthem for the '74 Lions Tour to S.A. and he chose Flower of Scotland. I don’t think the song is very old, only written in the '60s but it is wonderful to hear it being sung in Murryfield.
