“A litany of rugby saints which, collected together, twine into an illuminating and resonant social history of Welsh rugby. A grand book.” –Frank Keating

“ . . . another of those under-the-skin rugby books that are currently all the rage. That’s something to rejoice in, for they make cracking good reads . . . an absorbing social history of Welsh rugby . . .” –Rugby World

“. . . this carefully wrought little collection is uplifting . . . It makes for a terrific read . . . The overall effect makes for a serious social history . . . It was, and remains, a special and particular culture. And this is a particularly special book which proclaims it.” –Guardian “Heart and Soul works well because it never dwells too long on any particular figure – most chapters are typically 13 pages long – and the whole concept is excellently geared towards a pick up and put down read. All in all, Heart and Soul is an excellent read, with plenty to enjoy without getting bogged down in laborious detail and gushing sentiment.” –Pontypridd Observer
