WAKE UP for the British & Irish Lions Tour with AIG.

The British & Irish Lions are heading to New Zealand in June and as the Official Insurance Partner of New Zealand Rugby we want to help ensure you don’t miss a game. 

If you’re in the UK, or western Europe, then the All Blacks games will be kicking off at the start of your day (8:35am GMT). To help you fully prepare for the game, we want to get you in the spirit from the moment you wake up with a wakeup call from the All Blacks. We’ve created a custom alarm tone for you to download onto your phone and set as your wake up call.

Having won the World Rugby Coach of the Year, he was then appointed head coach of the British and Irish Lions for their most recent tour of New Zealand in 2005.

The All Blacks went undefeated in 2013, and Hansen was named IRB coach of the year for the second year running. The All Blacks retained the Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup, and won 14 of 14 matches, becoming the first team to ever do this in the professional era. In 2016, he was named World Rugby coach of the year for the fourth year. In 2015, Hansen led the All Blacks to their first ever foreign Rugby World Cup victory, before extending his contract as head coach through to the end of 2019.
