A really good read and highly recommended for anyone interested in the professional sport of rugby. But also highly recommended inspirational reading for all struggling with any challenges in life. Guys like Richard Hibbard who make it to the top of their chosen field get there due to a combination of reasons. Talent and physical size obviously help in the game of rugby, but this honest and straightforward account show how unbelievable levels of determination, in spite of many difficult challenges, make the difference between the good and the great. After reading this short story I have even more respect for Richard (and others like him) as a rugby player and human being. I sincerely wish Richard all the very best, an injury free 2015 and performances during the World Cup that he can feel proud of.

Richard has certainly become a Castle Grimm favourite and arguably looks set to become a Gloucester Rugby legend. Makes this quick read an interesting insight into where he comes from. Worth a read if you have an interest in rugby.

Short story - not a polished biography - but honest, insightful and eventually heart warming.

No easy life for Hibbs. Tough upbringing, tragedies and set backs but came through adversity to deservedly star for Wales and Lions.

Chuffed for him and his family that he has eventually found success as a pro rugby player - and is enjoying the rewards.

A true Lionheart.

I love Hibs - but this book is awful - a painful read - I had to stop part way through as it was affecting the way I thought about the man himself.
