Part of the book was written after the legendary 1971 Lions tour when author Ross Reyburn was sports editor of the Hampstead & Highgate Express in London. To his original manuscript, Reyburn has added an intriguing postscript putting into perspective what Dawes achieved as the key figure in British rugbys renaissance in the 1970s.
