Description

Ian Robertson's voice is instantly recognisable to rugby fans all over the world. Since 1976 he has been the voice of rugby for the BBC both on radio and television. His commentary of Jonny Wilkinson's world cup winning drop goal has become iconic, and he is known and loved by rugby fans everywhere.

In this autobiography, published to coincide with his retirement, Ian reflects on a career commentating on the sport he loves, reliving the highs and lows of the last forty years in rugby union.
