In 1905 a disallowed try gives rise to an intense rivalry beteen New Zealand and Wales that flourishes to this day. A mighty scrummager and former New Zealand heavyweight boxing champion uses a bit of both to subdue the 1956 Springbok. And in 1996 a multi-talented loose forward, who can run with the backs, throw giant passes and drop-kick goals, inspires a first-ever series win in South Africa.These remarkable stories and many more are presented here in The Roar of the Crowd, a historical pot-pourri of New Zealand rugby's greatest players, magical games and memorable moments. It is a marvellous selection loaded with glorious triumphs, heroic feats, titanic clashes and heart-stopping finales.
