Six Nations Storytellers
A collection of timeless interviews with the players and coaches who’ve been at the very heart of the world’s greatest rugby competition
Inside this issue: Sir Bill Beaumont, Stuart Lancaster, Shaun Edwards, Tommy Bowe, Serge Betsen, Cory Hill, Chris Paterson, Edoardo Gori, Ugo Monye, Andy Goode, Jim Hamilton, Phil Davies + rarely seen Five Nations archive images.
Sir Bill Beaumont takes us through his incredible tale, from the mills of Lancashire to becoming chair of World Rugby, via an unexpected England Grand Slam, captaining a Lions tour and, of course, A Question of Sport.
Stuart Lancaster gives one of his most in-depth interviews since 2015, as he talks about the early days of his coaching career, how he got the England job and the highs and lows of his Six Nations career.
Shaun Edwards on his late brother Billy-Joe, his dad’s world-record transfer fee in the 1950s, England job offers and what he first thought of Wales.
Cory Hill on coming of age in the Six Nations, the toughest of times in a South African hospital and life with the Lions as part of the ‘Geography Six’
Tommy Bowe on Ireland’s first Grand Slam in more than 60 years, how he learnt to fly in Wales, and his 30-second Six Nations farewell.
Serge Betsen on his Cameroon upbringing, destroying English fly-halves and when Bernard Laporte said he’d never play for France again.
Jim Hamilton & Andy Goode on it being okay to not always agree, stories that got them into trouble, and the only time they met on the field in the Six Nations.
Phil Davies on his role in the miner’s strike, taking the first hit in 1987’s Battle of Cardiff, and his search for one final top job.
