Rugby Christmas Training gift ideas
Missing your rugby over the festive period? Want to train but the whole family is too full of turkey and Christmas Pud? Get the Solo Skills ball to keep your passing and catching skills sharp.
I’m not sure this is a serious training aid, but it could be hilarious after a few glasses of wine on Xmas day.
Please drink (and tackle the Big Hit Tackle Buddy) responsibly.
Rugby Christmas Book gift ideas
My No.1 pick in Rugby Books this year. Alun Wyn Jones is one of the true legends of the game.
As Warren Gatland says:
“A true warrior. He demands excellence from himself and others around him. He has had success and disappointment, joy and sadness. People think they know him but unless you read this book you will never know the REAL Alun Wyn Jones.”
Floyd Steadman was mentioned by his brother-in-law, Phil Westren in Episode 54.
Floyd has prevailed against immense odds, prevailing not with anger, argument or hysterics, but with persistence, dignity and integrity. ‘A Week One Summer’ is his story.
I’ve got a serious soft-spot for the relaxed banter of this comic duo. Will that transfer nicely into a book? According to Rugby World, the answer is yes:
“Crammed full of funny stories, below-the-belt banter and amusing observations, it’s gold.”
The rise of the Exeter Chiefs from the lower leagues to a League and European double is the stuff of fairytales. All done with a traditional and strong culture.
I was fortunate to meet Mr Kitson at a pre-match lunch recently and he was delightful company, I’d recommend you buy the book based on that alone!
This is a book authored by a future guest. Alex Cassidy has combined amateur rugby, concussion issues and mental health into stunning debut novel.
This is an essential read for anyone with an interest in rugby union. It transported me back to my 20’s, playing Old Boys rugby in London.
Joe Marler is one of the most fascinating characters in rugby. This is his hilarious, unfiltered truth about being a rugby player – from the horsey’s mouth.
