• "Among the best books ever written on Irish sport"

    Sunday Tribune
  • "Brilliant ... The definitive account. It captures the essence of what makes Munster rugby and its provincial team so unique. For those of us centrally involved it drags us back in time as if the intervening 27 years haven't happened at all"

    Tony Ward, Irish Independent
  • "The most engaging book on rugby that I've read in many a year - well researched, splendidly put together with a deft control of narrative. The craft of the novelist with the graft of a hack - it's a winning formula"

    Mick Cleary, Daily Telegraph
  • "A terrific combination of intelligent reportage and open-eyed mythmaking"

    Sunday Times
  • "A mine of information on a mythical day in Irish sport"
