Laurent Brossoit Jersey .The Harlequins battering-ram already has two Lions tours under his belt and will hope to play his way into next summers squad that will head to New Zealand.Rugbys global fixture cycle is under greater scrutiny than ever with no Test matches agreed beyond World Cup 2019 and both hemispheres holding conflicting ideas about how to solve fixture congestion and improve player welfare.Roberts has called on governing body World Rugby and the games other top administrators to ensure the Lions does not suffer among those negotiations.I really hope the Lions can continue to have the right space in the calendar, said Roberts.Its unique in rugby and in world sport, where you have four countries coming together who usually battle against each other.And not just for the players but for the fans. To travel to the southern hemisphere and to support a team which only exists every four years, theres not too much like that in world sport, let alone rugby.And to see that disappear would be extremely sad.So from my point of view Ive been very, very grateful to have had the privilege and the honour of being on a Lions tour and experiencing that as a player.To see that not be one of the big, big things in the rugby calendar would be very, very sad.The Lions will endure a punishing 10-match schedule in New Zealand next summer, with the first tour match on June 3 just a week after the Aviva Premiership final. However, Roberts believes every player in the mix to tour next summer will set aside any complaints about a gruelling season in order to chase a starting Test jersey with the Lions.As much as people talk about cramming 10 games into five or six weeks, its that special, the Lions, and were not talking about something that happens every season, said Roberts.Its an extremely special and privileged place to be. And regardless of how much your bodys hurting after a long and tough season, youre ready.Youre ready to really put your body on the line.Players from the host nations, they only get the chance to play the Lions every 12 years. So its very easy to appreciate too just how big it is for them as well.They know playing against the Lions is a huge privilege as well, so long, long may it continue.? Anton Slepyshev Jersey .
