Overview
-

After a clean sweep in their 2018 Autumn Internationals, a 2019 Six Nations Grand Slam and their first ever stint at Number 1 in the world rugby rankings – knocking the All Blacks off the top for the first time in 10 years – Wales are riding high. The first Rugby World Cup to be held in Japan is arguably the best opportunity ever for Wales to challenge for the world crown. Can they see departing coach Warren Gatland off in style by winning rugby’s biggest prize?

Gatland's Last Bow is the inside story of Wales’ campaign at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, as witnessed by journalist Richard Morgan, out in Japan covering every twist and turn for British TV. He has behind-the-scenes access to the Wales camp, speaking to players and coaches as they prepare for their biggest challenge. He is in the media circus around the matches, getting insight from big-name former players such as Shane Williams, and traveling around the country sampling the culture, seeing how Wales fans cope in Japan and what the locals make of them! The book recounts the events leading up to Japan 2019, and then follows the Wales campaign in diary form as the drama and intrigue of the tournament unfolds. Including humorous tales you won’t have heard about during the campaign, and a 16-page section of color photographs.
