Description:
The Tom Richards Trophy is an international rugby union trophy awarded to the winner of British and Irish Lions vs. Australia test series. It was commissioned for the 2001 British Lions tour to Australia and the inaugural winner was Australia, who won the series 2-1. This was the first time that Australia had managed to defeat the Lions in a series. The two teams' first meeting was in Australia in 1899 where they played a four test series, won by the Lions 3-1.

Tom Richards was the only player to have played for both the Wallabies and Lions. He took part in the Gallipoli campaign and for his efforts in France was awarded the Military Cross. In 1908 Richards played in the first Wallaby team to tour Britain and won the gold medal at the 1908 Olympic Games. In 1910 he represented the Lions as a replacement on the their tour to South Africa whilst living in the country. In 1912 he was selected for the Wallaby tour to the US and Canada.
