The British and Irish Lions are to continue pressing Premiership Rugby to move their Gallagher Premiership final from its scheduled slot on June 26, 2021, so that they can play a £10million match in the UK, probably at Twickenham, ahead of departure for South Africa for the three-Test series.

Talks have been ongoing but have yet to find any resolution, even though the official schedule for the eight-match trip is to be officially released at 9 am on Wednesday.
Pro14 has already complied with a request from the Lions to free up that weekend before their departure so that a match can be staged to help raise funds as well as give those players not involved in the end-of-season finals extra preparation time. The Pro14 final that season will now be played on June 19.
There has been a huge concern that Lions tours have been stripped back to the bare bones with the agreed length of tour cut from the 10 games in six weeks itinerary that was employed in New Zealand in 2017, a compressed schedule in its way from previous tours. However, there has been little sign of any leeway being granted to the Lions in their desire to get meaningful game practice before traveling to South Africa to take on the world champions.
Warren Gatland, who has just arrived back in New Zealand to take up a one-season posting with the Chiefs ahead of his return in autumn 2020 to fulfill duties as Lions head coach for the third time, has been vocal in his desire to get a game played before the squad heads south.

“They have said they are not moving their final which I find very disappointing,” said Gatland recently. “I am saying to the clubs and the Premiership, embrace the Lions, you are going to play the world champions. There is an opportunity for players to go on a Lions tour and come back as superstars.
“They can sell more tickets and then kids want to watch them play. We are just missing a trick here. I cannot understand why the Premiership would not want to be more positive about the Lions and do more to help the Lions. It is the one frustrating thing I will have to deal with. Hopefully, common sense will prevail.”
