This review is from: Calon: A Journey to the Heart of Welsh Rugby (Paperback)
As the wru gave access to the author to the team, management this book whilst very descriptive is pretty bland really. If you want to know what music gethin Jenkins listens too on the team bus or what the team has for dinner then this will be for you.if however you want a balanced view of the team and the wru then forget it. Particularly galling is the way CEO Dennis gethin is put on a pedastel with his appalling record with regional rugby.
I don't think in the hundreds of pages there's any criticism of anyone or anything in the book and consequently the worse for it.

Mr. Simon D. Rees says:
Yes, I tend to agree - it's hagiography. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe that's a problem with Welsh rugby - not much realism!
