Dafydd Jones Other books by Dafydd Jones
"Since I was a very young schoolboy in Aberaeron, Mam would say the same thing to me before every rugby match. "Play with passion!" She told me that right up to my last ever game against New Zealand... It's a shame that my career came to an end before my passion for the game faded."
Dafydd is a young man from rural Ceredigion and as a young boy from the countryside he developed an interest in hunting and trotting races. Whilst at Aberaeron Comprehensive School he began taking an interest in rugby, showing an extraordinary ability as a player and gaining the interest of Llanelli rugby club. He was faithful to the club of the "Sosban Fach" throughout his career, playing more than 200 times for Llanelli and the Scarlets and winning 42 caps for his country. His biggest compliment came from Richie McCaw, the world's best wing forward, when he said that Dafydd Jones was the hardest opponent he'd ever faced.
This is the autobiography of a warm-hearted Welshman, looking back over his career, giving his no-nonsense opinion of the coaches he played for and telling stories of some stars of world rugby on and off the pitch.
