The Lions Debate


View Interactive

Adding to the conversation

Every four years, rugby fans debate which players should go on tour with the British & Irish Lions.

In 2021, I found myself discussing this in three different WhatsApp groups. And I was looking up stats from the Six Nations to back up my points. But I wished there was an easier way to see the information.

So – just for fun! – I created an interactive visualisation that allowed fans to compare the stats for different players.

The tool was discussed on popular rugby podcasts and blogs. And I heard, behind the scenes, that a number of former international players had got their hands on it, and were digging into the numbers to help settle the score.

Here’s a brief snapshot…
