As an Xmas stocking-filler, this has really brightened up the cold and wet January of 2010 for me. An easy read of course, but filled with fun and interesting stories - the difference betwen this and other similar titles, is in the wealth of contributions from many unsung heroes of the last 30 or 40 years, and this makes it unique in that many of the stories, I hadn't heard before. Most of them raise a good smile and several made me laugh out loud.

There are many contributions from our Irish rugby friends, and their take on things is always especially humorous. A word for the author too - he made many contributions himself and they clearly show that he was a man of his time - hard, dedicated and fun-loving in the extreme.

Well worth a read!

A "must" for anyone interested in rugby who enjoys a laugh.

Well written and gives the reader an insight into some of the greatest characters the game has ever produced both on and off the field.

this book is a must for anybody who has played or is indeed playing rugby union today. This book recounts memories from an era when the only money paid was by the players for kit and beer!!When rugby players were men and retribution was given and taken on the field and you took it and got on with the game.
This book has brought tears of joy and sadness in equal amounts with its moving and funny stories told by the people who were there.
If you dont like this book then you have never played rugby.
