Officially sanctioned by WRU, Wales Grand Slam 2005 is a compelling and unique souvenir to a momentous rugby achievement. Laden with the best in sports photography, and with in-depth match reports and statistics from every game in the RBS 6 Nations Championship. Presented as a stylish hardback book, it features interviews with coach Mike Ruddock, player-of-the-tournament Martyn Williams and inspirational skipper Gareth "Alfie" Thomas, as well as contributions from rugby greats such as Gerald Davies and Gareth Edwards.

The book captures the exuberant celebrations that greeted Wales' first Grand Slam for 27 years, with action from each thrilling round: the landmark win over England, the scintillating comeback against France, the record points haul against Scotland and, finally, the title-sealing triumph over Ireland. There is also coverage of the other games in the tournament, plus a look back at how Wales managed to evolve from perennial strugglers into genuine greats on the world stage.
