'Centre Stage: My Life in Rugby' by Jamie Roberts
This is the fascinating, honest and uncompromising story of Jamie Roberts - the rugby hard man standing 6 foot 4 tall, yet away from rugby, he's a mild-mannered and thoughtful man - a qualified doctor with a thirst for knowledge and a curiosity about the world around him. Jamie Roberts reveals how he was picked by new Wales coach Warren Gatland whilst playing his first full season with the Cardiff Blues, to play in the Grand Slam-winning Wales team of 2008, how a fractured skull was one of many injuries he had to overcome, and how he had to juggle the demands of university life and professional rugby. From winning 97 Test caps and playing for clubs in Paris, London and Cape Town. This book is a colourful and frank account of a sterling career.
