Lions of Wales free pdf No nation has made a greater contribution to the Lions than Wales. During almost half a century since the end of the Second World War, they have truly provided the lion's share not just of members of the supporting cast but also of captains, coaches and managers. In addition, they have provided some of the greatest players in the history of the game and some of the most endearing, none more so than Harry Bowcott, the oldest surviving Lion of all, who recalls in Lions in Wales what it was like to tour New Zealand almost 70 years ago. The book features other famous names and recounts prodigious deeds and unforgettable characters, such as Bobby Windsor, hooker in the invincible 1974 team. He and many others, from J.P.R. Williams to Barry John, Gareth Edwards to Phil Bennett, relive the epic matches and point to the decisive moments in the history of the Lions. This new edition of Lions of Wales has been fully updated to include those Welsh players selected for this year's tour of New Zealand. It contains a complete reference section detailing every Welsh Lion to have played in Test rugby for the most exclusive of all touring teams since the first post-war expedition to New Zealand in 1950 and is a must for rugby lovers of any generation.
