At the start of the 2005 Six Nations a team of sports photographers was given unprecedented access to the Welsh rugby team. Little did they know they were about to record a nation's greatest rugby moments for decades.
The result is Breathing Fire!, a spectacular 250 page book of stunning rugby photography that gets to the very heart and soul of Wales' Grand Slam triumph. From the pitch-side to the dressing room, from training to the team bus, these sensational photographs tell the story from the inside - Gareth Thomas driving the team bus, Kevin Morgan having his head stitched up, Gavin Henson doing his hair...
The official book of the team, Breathing Fire! also contains exclusive interviews with all the key players, telling the story of the Grand Slam in their own words.
"Brilliant pictures of our Grand Slam victory, interviews with all the boys and yours truly on the cover... what more could any Welsh rugby fan want from a book?" - Gareth Thomas
"A fantastic record of the most incredible two months of our lives." - Michael Owen
As featured in the Mail on Sunday, Western Mail and Rugby World magazine.
