Description

Jonny Wilkinson has set the rugby world alight since his international debut in 1998. In this revealing diary of the 2000-01 season, he takes the reader behind the scenes of his career at Newcastle Falcons, England and on to the British Lions tour to Australia in summer 2001. He talks about the players' strike in November, the foot and mouth crisis, his preparation for the matches, training, what really goes on on the pitch - and explains about his life away from the rugby field. Lions and Falcons builds up to a fascinating portrait of the modern professional rugby world, viewed from the very pinnacle of the sport.show more

By the beginning of 2001, still only 21, he had won 23 caps and already scored 313 points - the second highest of all time for England.show more
