9780007331420: Talk of the Toony: The Autobiography of Gregor Townsend

The game of rugby has taken Gregor Townsend from the Scottish border town of

Galashiels to the great playing fields of the world. No Scot in history has earned more international caps, and he has starred in some of the biggest matches in the sport, including the Grand Slam showdowns with England in 1995 and 1996, British Lions Test victories, and European and French Cup Finals. In this intriguing autobiography, Townsend recounts his life on the pitch and recalls his experiences of working alongside some of the game’s finest, among them Gavin Hastings, Clive Woodward, Jim Telfer, and Ian McGeechan. He details his shock at being omitted from the 2001 Lions squad, the infamous 1994 Scotland tour to Argentina where he was blasted for his performances and almost gave up the sport, and discusses for the first time the controversial circumstances surrounding his forced retirement. This is a candid account of a lifetime spent playing, thinking, and living rugby.
