Tells what happened when Wales played New Zealand in 1953. This story is written from contemporary accounts and the memories of the men who played that day, including Bob Stuart and Bleddyn Williams. This book examines the remarkable relationship between two countries on opposite sides of the world, brought together by a mutual passion for rugby.
'The Bounce of the Century' they called it. A ball kicked across Cardiff Arms Park in the dying minutes of a match between two of international rugby's fiercest rivals. The world's two greatest wingers waited as it bounced towards them, knowing that whoever caught the ball would score and win the match for his country.
