5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a little gem of a book. Well researched, it provides a mass of fascinating detail and anecdotes,which quite brilliantly bring back the year 1963 and the town of Newport as it was then to those of us who lived through both and who saw that epic match in which the home team beat the All Blacks 3-0.
The description of the match itself is a particularly good piece of writing, building up the suspense as Newport hold on to their narrow lead against the All Black onslaught and,quite remarkably, do not concede a single kickable penalty in spite of the intense pressure.
This is a book which is mainly of interest to Newport people and particularly to those who were there on that historic day, but it does also have some material with broader appeal,mainly to those who are interested in the extraordinary strength and popularity of Welsh club rugby at that time and what it is that we have lost in the intervening years

1.0 out of 5 stars How is it supposed to work?, 12 Aug 2011
The instructions for this device are pathetic. How is it supposed to work? If it holds the satnav flat on the dsahboard, how does one see the screen?I've got a Garmin Nurvi 1340 Widescreen SatNav and I suspect that the device is not suitable for the widescreen model. If this is the case, why didn't the vendors say so?
