The Priceless Gift

Over 1,000 players have been capped by Wales, but only a relatively small number have been given the honour of leading their country. It is to these men, the heroes and sometimes the villains, that this book is dedicated. From James Bevan in 1881 through to Gareth Thomas and Duncan Jones at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the role of captain has evolved in tandem with both the game itself and the much wider sociological and technological developments that dominated the twentieth century. Now, after more than 125 years of Welsh rugby, it is time to try to put the record straight. Who is the most successful Welsh captain? Why have so many players only had one opportunity to lead their country? Which position has seen the most captains and, indeed, which the least? Why were eight different captains chosen for eight consecutive matches? With input from many post-war captains,The Priceless Gift provides answers to these questions and many more in what is an enthralling insight into the Welsh captaincy.

During almost half a century since the end of the Second World War, they have truly provided the lion's share not just of members of the supporting cast but also of captains, coaches, and managers.

Lions Triumphant

When the British and Irish Lions set out for Australia in late May, they knew they faced a daunting task. Since the war, only four Lions sides had returned victorious, the last in 1997. In the modern era of professional rugby, some even questioned if the Lions concept still had a place. How could a mixture of of northern hemisphere nations come together and take on the might of one of the southern giants? Under coach Warren Gatland and captain Sam Warburton, the Lions of 2013 looked to overcome the doubters and to show they could still make the Lions roar. As captain, Warburton himself had to face questions over his form and fitness, but he emerged to lead his side to a stunning 23-21 victory in the first Test in Brisbane. The second Test was lost by the narrowest of margins, but the Lions bounced back to record an epic 41-16 triumph to seal the series. In this book, Warburton relives the entire Lions experience, from the moment he learned he had been chosen to captain the side to the time he got to raise the trophy at the end of the tour, and the huge welcome that greeted the squad when they returned home. Packed with insight and revealing details about the Lions preparations, this is the definitive inside account of one of rugby's greatest moments.

Legends of Irish Rugby

Based on exclusive interviews with 40 celebrated players, past and present, Legends of Irish Rugby is a veritable who's who of the sport. Immortals such as Jack Kyle, Willie John McBride, Tony Ward, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy and Paul O'Connell bare their souls to reveal themselves as men of vision, passion and dedication - men who, through their glories, disappointments and dramatic deeds, have inspired others to realise their dreams. In this engrossing and entertaining account of the bittersweet history of Irish rugby, these powerful personalities offer startling insights into some of the sport's most controversial moments - from the assault on Ronan O'Gara during the 2001 Lions tour to Gary Ella's tenure as Leinster coach. They also express their opinions on the most important issues facing the game today - from Brian O'Driscoll's hair to the role of the coach and the future of the sport itself. Their take on the times is often as comical as it is insightful. Compelling, informative and humorous, Legends of Irish Rugby is by far the most revealing volume yet on one of the country's favourite sports.

The Good  the Bad and the Ugly

What made Pontypool such a great seam of talent for the Welsh national team? Why were they hated and feared in equal measure by other clubs in Wales and across the Severn? What made Ray Prosser a coach ahead of his time? In this engrossing book, Alun Carter and Nick Bishop recount the dramatic story of the rise and fall of one of the great enigmas of Welsh club rugby: Pontypool RFC. They chart the glories and violence of the amateur era in the 1970s and ’80s before the club entered a period of steady decline in the age of professionalism, reaching the point of bankruptcy after a crippling legal battle with the Welsh RU. It is a symbolic tale of the disintegration of the social fabric that held a once-great club together, both on and off the playing field – often irresistibly funny, eventually tragic, but always larger than life.

Fields of Praise

"Rugby football has become identified with modern Wales. This book shows how and why this came about - how a game devised by and for English public school boys became the passion of an industrial, Welsh working class, why the game of rugby channelled a burning urge for dramatic, communal expression. The authors ... have written a history that combines an account of rugby play and administration with analysis of the vibrant social history of Wales."--Blurb.
