Welsh Rugby CaptainsThe Priceless Gift: 125 Years of Welsh Rugby Captains Welsh Rugby. 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 villains, that this book is dedicated. From James Bevan in 1881 through to Colin Charvis and Gareth Thomas 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 125 years of Welsh rugby, it is time to try and 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?"

Welsh Rugby LegendsLions of Wales: A Celebration of Welsh Rugby Legends Welsh Rugby. No nation has made a greater contribution to the Lions than Wales. 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. In addition, they have provided some of the greatest players in the history of the game and some of the most endearing, none more so than Harry Bowcott, the oldest surviving Lion of all, who recalls in "Lions of Wales" what it was like to tour New Zealand almost 70 years ago. The book recounts prodigious deeds and features unforgettable characters, such as Bobby Windsor, hooker in the invincible 1974 team. He and many others, from J.P.R. Williams to Barry John, Gareth Edwards to Phil Bennett, relive the epic matches and point to the decisive moments in the history of the Lions. This new edition of "Lions of Wales" has been fully updated to include those Welsh players selected for the 2005 tour of New Zealand. It contains a complete reference section detailing every Welsh Lion to have played for the most exclusive of all touring teams since the first post-war expedition to New Zealand in 1950 and is a must for rugby lovers of any generation.
