Publisher's Summary

From his days growing up in Scotland to his harrowing experiences fighting in Italy during World War Two, Bill McLaren has always been in the thick of it. Used to being caught up in the most dramatic moments rugby has ever seen, McLaren relives the highlights of his illustrious career, and talks of the game today and his regrets that rugby went professional. He is a fierce critic of professional rugby, fearing for the future health and safety of rugby players as the modern game becomes increasingly dangerous. His story amounts to a history of the game itself and reaffirms McLaren's status as something of a global treasure.

The voice of Rugby speaks

Bill McLaren, the voice of rugby.
Read, by the great man, with both passion and humour.
A real incite into a life lived to the full, doing something he enjoyed, and getting paid!

Great book narrated by the great man himself

Bill McLaren is know the world over as the voice of rugby and it was an absolute delight to hear him tell his life story. I had a great deal of respect for Bill before hearing his story but this is a rare case of someone actually going up in my estimation after reading their autobiography. The stories of his exploits during the second world war and his fight against TB are truly inspiring. Even if your not interested in Rugby I'd still recommend this book.
