Great Days in New Zealand Rugby
Written by Terry McLean. The book is in superb condition with a tight spine, clean pages, no inscriptions and no damage to note. The dustjacket is present, though slightly torn at the corners.
The book is 198 pages. Terry McLean, a leading Rugby Writer and author of several books on the game, has traversed 60 years of rugby history in writing accounts of 20 historic matches played by or among New Zealand teams. Begining with 1897, the year a Wellington team was stoned and called "Butchers", McLean discusses, among other matches, the epic of 1905 between Wales and New Zealand, the day in 1924 when a New Zealand forward was ordered from the field at Twickenham and the historic day in 1956 when the Waikato provincial team defeated the touring South African team in spite of having to play most of the match with only 14 men.
This book is now getting more difficult to find, but is a must for anybody with an interest in the history of the game.
Taming The Tourists - Cardiff RFC
Taming The Tourists - By Alan Evans
Launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Cardiff's momentous defeat of the All Blacks on 21 November 1953, 'Taming the Tourists' is the epic tale of how one club beat the might of New Zealand, South Africa and Australia over a century-and how the wallabies lost to the Blue and Blacks six times in a row.
The book includes personal recollections of great players including Cliff Morgan, Bleddyn Williams, Gerald Davies, John Scott and Gareth Edwards and raises the uncomfortable issue of whether the much loved international tours will ever return to the rugby calendar in the professional age.
Taming the Tourists has 224 pages plus 16 pages of photos and is a hardback. The photos depict the historic matches and a full statistical record and analysis
This book is brand new, 1st edition complete with dust jacket. The book is retailing in shops at £15.99.
A great gift for any Cardiff Supporter.
