Tours to New Zealand and Canada, first and third in the world, could form the basis for a women’s team’s itinerary.
“A Lions women’s team is an important step forward,” said McEwen.

“There is a place for a women’s Lions team, lots of people have been talking about it.
“Whether that’s in the next two or three years, whether that’s in five, 10 years, who knows?”
New Zealand’s women will play world champions England in a curtain-raiser to the Lions’ match against the Maori All Blacks in Rotorua on 17 June.
