The Dawes Decades: John Dawes and the Third Golden Era of Welsh Rugby
Across the world the Welsh team of the late sixties and early seventies is fondly remembered for its mix of steely ball-winning and flamboyant try-scoring. The architect of their success was one of the game’s outstanding thinkers: centre John Dawes.
Working with Dawes, David Parry-Jones has produced an incisive narrative of the period, charting Dawes’ input into this rich rugby era and examining the changes in the way the game was presented and its public perception, from the impact of television to the early stirrings of professionalism. The final volume of the Parry-Jones trilogy of Welsh Golden Era books.
