    Kings of Rugby The Book

    I was told about this book a few months ago by a former Lion, who has signed it, having looked at the book on the website, I have ordered it, the cost is €213, which includes registered delivery, it is limited to 490 editions, it looks super, I spoke with the author Paul Verdon a few minutes ago, and is willing to give a discount if some of you group together. Click on the link below you will be impressed.

    There has never been a book like this

    Here some of the legendary players who featured in the ‘Battle for the World Crown’ …

    Don Clarke, Colin ‘Pinetree’ Meads, Peter Jones, Kel Tremain, Wilson Whineray, ‘Tiny’ Hill, Terry Lineen, Ross Brown, Ian Clarke, Ron Hemi for the All Blacks …

    And Tony O’Reilly, Peter Jackson, Ken Scotland, David Hewitt, Bev Risman, Dickie Jeeps, Ronnie Dawson, Hughie McLeod, Noel Murphy, Rhys Williams for the Lions …

    <DIV style="WIDTH: 5px; FLOAT: left; HEIGHT: 31px; CLEAR: left; relative: " ="tinyText style_SkipSoke_2 inline-block soke_0" _counted="undefined"></DIV>“Never before and never again” is quite a call. But Father Time waits for no man. A few of these Legends have passed on. Forty-three remained alive when this project began. The survivors are mainly in their 70s and 80s. Even the brilliant Lions’ centre, David Hewitt – the ‘baby’ of the series at 19 years of age – is now “an the old-age pensioner,” as he told the author, Paul Verdon.

    In producing Kings of Rugby, a collector’s piece of intrinsic and historical value has been created. It’s all about quality – and quantity! This is a world first. Never before has such a project been achieved. All the All Blacks and all the Lions participated. One participant has since died, meaning the feat can never be replicated.

    Now you’re beginning to see the uniqueness of this collection. It’s already been called “a piece of Bradman-esque memorabilia.”

    Meanwhile, among the many records set by the 1959 Lions, their feat as the highest-scoring international team ever to tour New Zealand, will never be beaten.
    If a man tried to take his time on earth and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth, I wonder what would happen to this world

          I spoke to an ex lion, just spoke to the author, a discount for a group...I'm sorry but it just comes across as a little disingenuous to me. I could be wrong, after all no one else has voiced opinions similar to me.

            I can assure you there is nothing untoward, or misleadinggoing on here, it is something I saw and wanted other people to be aware of it, as in my opinion it is a collectors item, that's all.

              I doubt there is a charity involved but then again there may be.

                  No problem, glad to clear it up, I have numerous rugby books that are collectors items, just a fan of that kind of thing, there may be more than me out there that have a love of such things.
