Be the first to review this product

Based on exclusive interviews with players past and present, this account provides unique insight into the drama and emotion of representing Scotland in the most rarefied of environments: test match rugby. Drawing out innumerable humorous anecdotes and heart-warming memories from Russell Bruce and Frank Coutts in the 1940s as well as present-day players, these interviews uncover the heart and soul of Scottish rugby and recount the ecstasy of victory and the despair of defeat. From the tension before kickoff to the tumultuous heat of battle and the hijinks thereafter, this is the story of what it is like to play for Scotland, the sacrifices and joys experienced by those who have shed blood, sweat, and tears in pursuit of glory in the international jersey. Absorbing, illuminating, and compelling, this is a must-have for all rugby supporters who have dreamed of playing for Scotland.
