About this deal

His appearance on Desert Island Discs brought his story to millions of people, many of those noting his integrity and honesty, not to mention his fierce passion for the game. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and all messages from SagePay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. He is the current world record holder for most Test matches refereed and recently retired from being one of three professional referees at the Welsh Rugby Union. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

There are plenty of great little stories peppered throughout this book, from dropping his steak in front of the Queen to the rituals he follows when preparing for big games, such as donning Superman boxer shorts to listening to inspiring playlists including the stirring hymn ‘How Great Thou Art. And even when he was accepted as the best in the world he still struggled to get a contract with the WRU!

He came out as gay in 2007, and has spoken about his difficulties with his sexuality, his experience of living with bulimia nervosa and attempting suicide. I'm truly humbled by the staunch backing, messages of goodwill, warmth and affection people have shown me. Coupled, of course, with those epic on-pitch lectures to players which ended up becoming social media sensations. Paul Abbandonato, who has collaborated with Nigel Owens on this autobiography, is a multi-award-winning journalist who has been Head of Sport for Wales Online and the mainstream Welsh newspapers for several years. We will never actually see your bank or credit card details, they are passed in a highly secure way directly to PayPal for processing.His pride in how locals in his home village have rallied around and taken delight at Owens' achievements comes across loud and clear in the book. Indeed, there is a chapter in the autobiography devoted to each of Owens' famous sayings, there are so many of them, but he was utterly shocked they went viral.

Towards the end of the second half one of the players asked him if he could tell him when there were five minutes remaining and indeed repeated the request a little while later. One of those came at Twickenham during an England versus New Zealand game in 2014, when a supporter wrote to The Guardian newspaper to complain about the horrific comments he heard being directed at Owens. With his contract with the Welsh Rugby Union having come to an end in 2020, he is free to reveal all about his career since his previous autobiography, 'Half Time', to speak his mind on various issues and to give the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019. The story of the second half of Nigel's career as one of the most famous referees in World Rugby and one of only two Welsh referees ever to officiate at a Rugby World Cup Final, including the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019.Shipped packages to mainland UK destinations should arrive between one to two working days from despatch.
