WELLINGTON ATHLETIC RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB WORLD TOUR 1966
In 2016 Seamus Coogan and I published the book "Wellington Athletic Rugby Football Club World Tour 1966" This tour was a world first and the stories recalled by team members about the tour are humorous and make for some enjoyable reading' The book tells how it happened, the results, the players, the hangovers. It's all there. The story of true Kiwi ingenuity.
I believe you will enjoy this story of a team of young New Zealand Club Rugby players who took on a World Tour and made a contribution to the game in the countries they visited. This is not the usual rugby book. There is something for everyone to enjoy and be challenged to "Dream the impossible dream" and then make it a reality.
I am an ex All Black (1956 to 1962) and this tour was the highlight of my rugby career.
