Stradey Park, Llanelli: the field of rugby folklore, each blade of grass with its historic tale to tell, each clump of soil the stuff of legends.

It was home to the Scarlets and Sosban Fach for over a century; a home fit for heroes like Albert Jenkins, Lewis Jones, Carwyn James, Phil Bennett, Ray Gravell and the Quinnells.

But it is not only the stars of Stradey that are celebrated in this entertaining collection of portraits, reports and anecdotes, because Llanelli has always been the People's Club, as proud of its wise-cracking, one-eyed supporters as it is of its players. And between them, they have some great memories to share and secrets to tell!

In the company of the popular broadcaster and former first-class referee Alun Wyn Bevan, re-live those monumental moments in Stradey's history; rub your eyes in disbelief once again as the mighty All Blacks are humbled; wipe your eyes as Biarritz shatter another European dream.

Rugby folk love a good story. And Stradey Stories is full of them!
