Members may be interested to know that the Men's Rugby Blues coach in the 1980's and 90's, Lynn Evans, has recently published his book, 'From Valley Boy to Table Mountain: A Life in Rugby.' It is available to purchase from Amazon. Lynn’s refreshing & innovative coaching style comes through in what he writes. The Times and Sunday Times Rugby Correspondent Stuart Barnes (St Edmund Hall, 1981) wrote the foreword:
"This is a book urgently in need of being read. The case against the tyranny of excessive structure has been something of a dying voice in the wilderness, especially in the English era of Eddie Jones. Lynn Evans is a disciple of the great French full back, thinker and coach, Pierre Villepreux. Across the Channel in our increasingly isolated Anglo-Saxon rugby world, fewer and fewer understand the essential argument Evans makes. Anyone with an interest in the game, either in a technical or purely pleasure based sense should read it."
