Riassunto: The former Wales and Lions rugby captain has travelled the world watching rugby and talking about the game since his retirement in 1978. This book tackles a host of issues dominating the sport in the modern era. When Prince Charles watched Llanelli play the All Blacks on their last meeting in 1997, he claimed he had the best seat in the house - the one next to Phil Bennett. Such is the esteem in which the ex Wales and Lions captain is held, it's no wonder his frank opinions and hard-hitting appraisal of the sport he lives and breathes continue to have as much impact now as they did when he was the world's premier fly-half in his heyday. In his book, Bennett is scathing of the Welsh rugby administrators, poor standards of coaching and the failure to embrace new ideas. On a global level he has strong views on professional rugby and the rise of the European game.
L'autore: Phil Bennett was born in October 1948. He played for Llanelli, gained the first of his 29 caps for Wales in 1973, and twice toured with the British Lions, including captaining the side to New Zealand. He also led Wales to a Grand Slam in 1978 before his retirement. He continues to work as an expert summariser on BBC TV, as a popular after-dinner speaker and has a column in the Sunday Mirror. Graham Thomas is a rugby journalist who works for BBC Sport.
