As Remembrance Sunday nears, a new book entitled ‘The Final Whistle: the Great War in Fifteen Players’ has been published.
It’s a history of the Great War 1914-18, told through the stories of 15 men, who all played for Rosslyn Park. It’s also a ‘love song’ to the game of rugby. Published by The History Press, with good reviews from Fergal Keane and Ian Hislop. The foreword is by Bill Beaumont, Chairman RFU.
Royalties go entirely to charity – Prostate Cancer UK (for Andy Ripley) and RP Injury Trust, which helps young sports-people with life-changing injuries. Click on the cover below to buy.
