4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking book, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lion Man: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
The first rugby match I ever observed was the 1990 'Grudge match' between us and Scotland. I was only a 10 year old kid but my dad's reaction after the game said it all. He was gutted by the result but he told me a few things about their coach....a Mr Ian McGeechan. Fast track to 1997 and 2009 and the Lions tours to SA. I will never forget these tours. Immense viewing. Brilliant win in 1997, and so darn close in 2009. Sheer passion and pride in the Lions shirt. The architect of our success was...a Mr Ian McGeechan. This book brings back some exciting memories of these times. For a non-rugby playing man like me this book provides a superb insight into Sir Ian McGeechan. Particularly his coaching methods, his passion for the Lions shirt and what it represents, his loyalty to not only Scotland but to his Yorkshire roots and to his family. This is a solid book, but it is a bit disjointed and repetitive in places. Plus even I know that Willie John McBride was nae Scottish! Overall an enjoyable read.

Organised Chaos - I will always remember this!
