Rugby Union: Wit, Wisdom and Mud (Audio Download): BBC Audiobooks Ltd, Tony O'Reilly, BBC Worldwide Ltd: Audible Audiobooks epub –

The typical wit and humour of rugby loving people comes through the wonderful voice of the late great Cliff Morgan. I had expected these CDs to draw on a wealth of material to keep the rugby fan entertained but they meander around resulting in an inconsistent jumble of interviews and reminiscences Occasionally hitting the spot, too often they appear dated and too specialist for anyone but the most ardent rugby fan of encyclopaedic knowledge. An outstanding Audio book that really impressed me with its depth of research, knowledge and experience of Rugby Union The events that were discussed reminded me of my youth in the 1960 s and the speakers and commentators from each era gave accounts of events and players that contained great humour and accurate historical information.It lives up to its name No game generates passion, or stirs the emotions, like Rugby Union No game enjoys itself when the final whistle blows And none has produced quite such a line of good talkers, on or off the subject Here, from the BBC s unique Sound Archives, are memories of great teams, matches and tries, the wit and wisdom of some of the legendary characters to have graced the game and a few of its celebrated followers Contributors include Tony O Reilly, Barry John, Chris Rea, Bill McLaren, Bill Beaumont, Gareth Edwards, Willie John McBride, Gerald Davies, Spike Milligan, Richard Harris, Richard Burton and many others
