Roars from the Back of the Bus : Rugby Tales of Life with the Lions Paperback

Edited by Stewart McKinney


"Roars from the Back of the Bus" is an absorbing, amusing and at times moving collection of tales that give a rare insight into the camaraderie that exists between players at the top of their game, showing that relationships forged through experiences on a Lions tour last a lifetime.

From the first Tour in 1888, it showcases characters with immense personality who fought together in wars or on rugby pitches in foreign lands, and who shared a bond developed through touring as representatives of the home nations.

Despite the changes to the game after the advent of professionalism, the experiences of Jamie Heaslip, Brian O'Driscoll and Joe Worsley are still similar in some ways to those of earlier intrepid tourists like Blair Mayne, Lewis Jones, Sir Carl Aarvold or David Rollo.

Containing defining memories and private insights from across the tours and the decades, "Roars from the Back of the Bus" shows that the Lions ethos remains strong at the heart of every team.
