Description

English rugby's most decorated flanker, Neil Back, returns with a tale of triumphs, heartaches and broken promises. Neil dissects the Lions' disastrous 2005 tour of New Zealand, the ousting of Dean Richards from Leicester Tigers, and his time at Leeds. So to heartbreak at Rugby Lions, and a critical illness which has shaped his perspective on life.
