Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the wonderful history of the Welsh Rugby Union team.

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

Relive the history of the Wales national Rugby Union team through newspaper clippings in this personalised Welsh Rugby book. With coverage beginning in 1905, with Wales winning the Home Nations championship, this timeless piece of Welsh rugby memorabilia takes you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from the National Stadium at Cardiff Arms Park and the Millennium Stadium, right up until the present day.

In total, Wales have won 7 outright Home Nations titles, 15 outright Five Nations and four Six Nations, most recently in 2013. Wales’ best performance in the Rugby World Cup came in the inaugural 1987 tournament, when they finished in 3rd place. They would go on to host the tournament in 1999, losing in the quarter-finals to eventual winners Australia. In 2004, Wales recorded their biggest ever win with a 98-0 demolition of Japan, and a year later they registered their first ever Six Nations Grand Slam, a feat they repeated in 2008 and 2012.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Ann Thomas Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 27 December

Excellent, my husband was delighted with the book

Tiger Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This was by far the most unique gift we could have bought. When you have a fan of the Wales Rugby Club in your life, it's easy to find the usual mugs, hats, scarves, etc... But wanted to find something that would really stand out and this book had precisely that impact. Essentially, it's a collection of hundreds of stories that not only detail the history of the club, but reveal the changes in reporting, in newspaper layout, font, etc... So it's a treasure trove of history in sports reporting as well as on the Welsh Rugby Club.

Julie Howard Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 August

Not at all what I expected! Thought there would be some content, not literally all newspaper cuttings (cheap papers not broadsheets at that! Personalised sticker on inside also not straight, would have sent back if I thought I could but went for personalised option.

Unusual 50th Birthday Present

It was birthday present for my sister. She loved it. It did take longer to arrive than I thought it would, hence 4 stars and not 5, but it reached her in time for her birthday as I ordered it about 2 weeks ahead of time. A really nice unusual gift for a special birthday

Following a problem with the web page…

Following a problem with the web page when ordering,'In The Book' have been very supportive in sorting this out. Thank you

Shelby Jones Maddox Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 20 January

Great product

Overall, the book is fantastic! Beautiful colors and well made. I first ordered from In The Books because my daughter's name is unique, and she can't find anything with her name in stores, and I wanted something special for her birthday coming up. It was easy to order, and I got a confirmation email immediately. The only trouble I had was the order wasn't showing up on my account and I could not track it. I got very scared that this was a scam and that I would not receive it. Sure enough it arrived the next day (1/19/19), earlier than expected (est. DD was 1/22-24). I would like to purchase more, but they are a little pricey, which is to be expected since they are personalized. A suggestion I have would be to consider reviewing your prices to make them more affordable. Thanks so much!

Great gift idea for a little princess!

Very prompt delivery. The new owner loves her own personalised princess story xxx

Proud Grandma Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 January

I love these books

I love these books. I bought three for my grandchildren. The only reason I didn't give this product a "5" rating is because I have found that in one book a word is missing in the second sentence of the book. In another, there is a verb missing in the first sentence.

SUE SOUTHAMPTON Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 January
