  1. About the book
  2. Book Reviews


When we talk about rugby in the 1970s, what we actually mean is Welsh rugby in the 1970s. 

It was the decade which made international superstars of Gareth Edwards, Barry John, Gerald Davies, Phil Bennett, Mervyn Davies and JPR.  It was the decade which gave us the Pontypool front row - and Max Boyce, of course. 

Fun-packed and bumper-size, like those much loved annuals of the 1970s, this book features all the best bits about Grand Slams and Groggs, Lions and Barbarians, tours and scores.

So, put on your flares, stick on your sideburns and enjoy once again what made the 1970s so special for players and fans in Wales and all over the world. 


Carolyn Hitt, Western Mail columnist, author and broadcaster, was the first woman to win the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame Journalist of the Year award.  She grew up in the 1970s and when she was asked in primary school to 'draw a picture which means Wales to you', she drew Mervyn Davies!
