Friday, June 5th, 2020 - 51 minutes

Former Neath, Ospreys, Wales & British & Irish Lions legend James Hook joined us on Friday’s Sports Show alongside sports author Dave Brayley. Dave has written books with the likes of Tony Cottee and Ashley Williams & has now teamed up with James. We found out the series is called Chasing the Rugby Dream with the first book called Kick Off, all about a 10 year old boy who’s fanatical about rugby and wants to play the game. We heard how the idea for the book came about how the characters were developed and what’s next in the series. James also gave us an idea how lockdown has been treating him, how he’s been coping with home schooling his kids and he looked back on his career & divulged some secrets to us, who the best singer in the Welsh squad was when he played; Who was regarded as the biggest joker & what life was like in France when he played for Perpignan
