Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited autobiography of one of the most respected rugby union referees ever.

It's rare for a referee in any sport to be popular, yet Nigel Owens has always courted strong affection throughout the world - loved by the players, coaches, officials, TV commentators and even fans. A real character, some of his famous put-downs whilst lecturing players, such as 'This is Not Soccer', have become huge social media hits.

The best rugby referee of his generation, Nigel also has an incredible back story to tell. After coming through dark times when he tried to take his own life, he was the first leading figure in the macho world of rugby union to come out openly as gay and went on to command respect everywhere for his honesty off the pitch and ability as a referee on it.

This is an inspirational story of triumph over adversity, hope over despair. It all makes for a truly compelling read as the rugby book of the year.

With a foreword by Dan Carter.
