About the Author

Alun Richards was born in Pontypridd in 1929. From the 1960s he was, and successfully so, a full-time writer and published novels and collections of short stories as well as plays for stage and radio, original screenplays and adaptations for television, including BBC's Onedin Line. He died in 2004.


"One of the most readable books on rugby - a stylish contribution to the game's history." The Times "The best evocation there is of this charismatic if restless man." Gerald Davies "The Welsh persona is at the heart of Alun Richard's book, so much so that the reader could be forgiven for imagining that Dylan Thomas played fly half for Swansea and that Harry Secombe hooked for Pontypool, and perhaps still does - untold pleasure and excitement." Chris Laidlaw, The Sunday Times "A craftsman, a wordsmith who can compel you to re-read and savour a sentence, a paragraph or a number of pages..." The Observer "Stayed up half the night and cracked the dawn. Loved it." Cliff Morgan "A beautifully written insight into the very heart and soul of Welsh Rugby and a handsome addition to the literature of the game." Bill McLaren
