This marvellous anthology gives us a wonderful taste of the kind of writing and the variety of styles that the game has inspired over the years... I hope this collection gives you as much pleasure as it did me.' Gerald Davies --Western Mail
We all like choosing the best-ever rugby team, but here is a XV with a difference. A team of fifteen writers, not players, describe the exploits of the people’s heroes from Gould to Gareth Edwards. The beauty and exhilaration of the game is vividly recaptured in some classic prose. So too are the emotions and expectations of the most passionate followers in the world. They deserve the best team we can put out. Here it is, a selection of world-beating writing on British rugby.
