At Blackheath in February 1881, Wales played their first international rugby match. What happened in the nearly 500 matches since then is contained in this complete guide to Welsh international rugby. It includes all the World Cup finals and qualifying matches played by the national side as well as a summary of the action as it happened in each match. Other information includes: the date of the match; the venue; full details of both teams and replacements (including which clubs they played for); who scored what (tries, conversions, penalties, dropped goals); and referees. Almost 1000 players have been capped for Wales, and this book lists them all in the order in which they made their debut, giving their nickname, the position they played in, dates of birth and death, and number of appearances made. The leading scorers in terms of points, tries and so on are shown, with captains, debut scorers, most points in a game, youngest players capped, most capped players, sendings-off and a full record of Welshmen who have refereed at international level.
