Behind the Dragon

Playing Rugby for Wales
by Ross Harries - Find out more about the author


eBook also available from the iBookstore

This is a complete history of the Welsh rugby union team – told by the players themselves.

Based on a combination of painstaking research into the early years of the Wales team to interviews with a vast array of Test match players and coaches from the Second World War to the present day, Ross Harries delves to the very heart of what it means to play for Wales, painting a unique and utterly compelling picture of the game in the only words that can truly do so: the players’ own.

Behind the Dragon lifts the lid on what it is to pull on the famous red shirt – the trials and tribulations behind the scenes, the glory, the drama and the honour on the field, and the heart-warming tales of friendship and humour off it. Absorbing and illuminating, this is the ultimate history of Welsh rugby – told, definitively, by the men who have been there and done it.

Ross Harries is regularly seen presenting the BBC’s international rugby coverage, and presenting BBC Wales’ Scrum V and Scrum V Live programmes (the most watched rugby programmes on British television) and a regular on BBC radio. In 2015, he co-wrote Bomb: My Autobiography with Adam Jones.
