Inhaltsangabe: Wales versus the All Blacks: a special rugby relationship. Three Feathers and a Silver Fern narrates a history of all matches played by the All Blacks in Wales and of the Welsh team fixtures in New Zealand between December 1905 and November 2012. But it goes further; it differs from other histories because it shifts the focus from the nitty-gritty of play to the delights and curiosities of off-field activities, obligations and functions, drawing our attention to this often overlooked aspect of the game. From forgotten facts unearthed in old, dusty newspapers to fresh first-hand anecdotes and recollections by modern-day Welsh and All Blacks "greats," Rogen Penn provides us with an unorthodox and stimulating look at these memorable rugby encounters. And as a definite thread running throughout the book, the famous disallowed try of 1905 is newly evaluated. "I say ?good? on the bloke who pulled Bob Deans back? It was good for the game that he didn?t score [in 1905]: good for the Wales versus New Zealand fixtures." John Sinclair "A history that has, at last, been recorded correctly and sympathetically.? Brian Price ?An absorbing read of the pride and passion of two rugby countries: a classic book," Roy Bergiers.
Inhaltsangabe: From the first match between Wales and New Zealand in 1905 to November 2012, a mutual bond of rivalry and respect has developed between the two countries, both having a passion for rugby. In this book the author documents the history of all the matches played but contrary to other histories it shifts the focus from the nitty-gritty of play to the delights and curiosities of off-field actions, obligations and functions, drawing our attention to this often-overlooked aspect of a tour. From forgotten facts unearthed in old, dusty newspapers to the fresh anecdotes and recollections of modern day 'greats' - both All Black and Welsh - Roger Penn provides us with an unorthodox and stimulating look at these great rugby encounters.
