Books Info:

Three Feathers and a Silver Fern free pdf From the first match between Wales and New Zealand in 1905 to November 2012, a mutual bond of rivalry and respect has developed between the two countries, both having a passion for rugby. In this book the author documents the history of all the matches played but contrary to other histories it shifts the focus from the nitty-gritty of play to the delights and curiosities of off-field actions, obligations and functions, drawing our attention to this often-overlooked aspect of a tour. From forgotten facts unearthed in old, dusty newspapers to the fresh anecdotes and recollections of modern day 'greats' - both All Black and Welsh - Roger Penn provides us with an unorthodox and stimulating look at these great rugby encounters.

About Roger G. K. Penn

Roger Penn lives in Whitland, west Wales and is now retired after a career with Lloyd's Bank. His first publication, Dolycwrt (Gomer, 2011) charts one hundred years of medicine and his second title Beyond the Call of Duty (Gomer 2012) is a biography of his father, Dr George Penn. As a former Welsh Rugby Union referee, his enthusiasm for the game and attention to detail is reflected in this well researched and accessible book.
