The Great Britain Rugby League Lions are returning for their first matches since 2007 - with four Tests planned, including two against New Zealand in Auckland and Christchurch.

The Lions beat New Zealand 3-0 in England 12 years ago and the Kiwis' long-awaited chance for revenge will start on 2 November, a week after the Lions open their tour in Hamilton against Tonga.

The Lions will play a fourth and final tour match against Papua New Guinea on 16 November in Port Moresby.

You can watch live coverage of all four matches on the BBC as well as highlights, and you can catch up on any of the action you might have missed courtesy of the BBC iPlayer.

There will also be live text commentaries, in-play clips, team news, match reports and analysis on the BBC Sport website and app.
