Goughy - A Tough Lock to Crack

Ian Gough  Other books by Ian Gough

One of the most popular Welsh rugby players of recent times, Ian Gough has proven to be tough on and off the field, with a reputation for straight talking and hard-hitting views.

His long and distinguished career puts him in a unique position to cast a critical eye over Welsh and world rugby in the last 20 years - with behind-the-scenes insights on issues such as the Grannygate scandal and the Ruddock player-power controversy.

He has played alongside some of the game's biggest names and gives his views on its larger-than-life characters, from Gavin Henson to Shane Williams.

A double Grand Slam winner, Gough has clocked up almost 500 appearances, including 64 full international caps a md more than 100 games for the Ospreys, with whom he won two Celtic League titles.

A Gwent legend, he is in the unique position of also playing more than 100 times for Newport RFC in the pre-regional era and the Dragons since then.

In his revealing autobiography, he looks back at the many ups and downs including:

His international debut in a record-breaking Welsh defeat in South Africa, 96-13, which made him think his career was over before it had even started.

Exile from international rugby and his "cameo" role in the first Welsh Grand Slam in 27 years.

The story of Wales' disastrous 2007 Rugby World Cup campaign.

The incredible 2008 Grand Slam success when he was one of 13 Ospreys in the Wales team that defeated England at Twickenham.

A long, high-profile legal battle to clear his name over allegations of assault.
