Lions of Wales : Celebration of Welsh Rugby Legends, Hardback

Lions of Wales : Celebration of Welsh Rugby Legends Hardback


No nation has made a greater contribution to the Lions than Wales.

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

They have also provided some of the greatest players in the history of the game, as well as the most endearing.

None more so than Harry Bowcott, the oldest surviving Lion of all, who recalls what it was like to tour New Zealand almost 70 years ago.

This book features other famous names and recounts prodigious deeds and unforgettable characters, such as Bobby Windsor, hooker in the invincible 1974 team.

He and many others, from JPR Williams to Barry John, and Gareth Edwards to Phil Bennett, relive the epic matches and point to the decisive moments in the history of the Lions.

The book includes a complete reference section detailing every Welsh Lion to have played in Test rugby for the most exclusive of all touring teams since the first post-war expedition to New Zealand in 1950.
