Rugby Books By Steve Tomlin

t1

Ex-player Steve Tomlin details the lives and playing careers of forty-six leading Pirates players and four senior coaches covering both the amateur and professional eras of the club.

It is almost entirely based on a series of detailed interviews with the players themselves – or with their colleagues and families if they are no longer with us.

Many of those featured played at international level whilst others remained as heroes in their own backyard. It gives a fascinating and often hilarious insight into the lives, pressures, achievements and disappointments of rugby players of different generations and varying backgrounds.

True Legends are featured from Stack Stevens to Alan Paver, plus contempary favourites Gavin Cattle, Laurie McGlone, Rob Elloway, Chris Morgan and many more. Coaches from Jim McKay to Chris Stirling are given equal treatment.

A True History Of Special Pirates One And All

 

First published in 2009 'Pirates! Pirates!' tells the full story of The Cornish Pirates rise from its lowly position in the Western Counties League in 1995 to become a major force in National One – and onwards.

This is one of the most comprehensive books ever written about a British rugby club and covers every match throughout its successive promotions and National One history.

It also charts the momentous decision to leave Penzance and to become the Cornish Pirates plus the moves to Truro and Camborne, the triumph at Twickenham and the contribution of its fantastic supporters.

It includes a detailed record of all results, scorers and appearances and is 'must' for all Cornish rugby supporters and indeed those of club rugby in general.
