Over 1,000 players have been capped by Wales, but only a relatively small number have been given the honour of leading their country. It is to these men, the heroes and sometimes the villains, that this book is dedicated. From James Bevan in 1881 through to Gareth Thomas and Duncan Jones at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the role of captain has evolved in tandem with both the game itself and the much wider sociological and technological developments that dominated the twentieth century. Now, after more than 125 years of Welsh rugby, it is time to try to put the record straight. Who is the most successful Welsh captain? Why have so many players only had one opportunity to lead their country? Which position has seen the most captains and, indeed, which the least? Why were eight different captains chosen for eight consecutive matches? With input from many post-war captains, "The Priceless Gift" provides answers to these questions and many more in what is an enthralling insight into the Welsh captaincy.
