No, Heart and Soul the character of Welsh rugby published October was defined in terms of the relationship between players and supporters Individual authors evoked the memory of favourite players and went on to trace the differing ways in which the careers of their heroes had shaped their own perception of the game and their sense of Wales In this new volume similar themes will be investigated Again chosen players are favourites men who played the game delightfully and effectively whilst at the same time exuding a degree of authority and confidence that inspired a grateful nation Moreover many of the subjects were to have second careers when their playing days were over as administrators coaches or pundits they still played a part in moulding the rugby culture of Wales, To contribute to the debate on guardianship in Scotland this publication brings a historical perspective an account of problems in practice and a census of Scottish guardianship cases together It concludes that the current debate on guardianship within the context of decision making for mentally incapacitated adults and its relation to fund management provide an opportunity to establish a new balance between public and private guardians to clarify the legal status of wards to include both cognitive and functional aspects of capacity and their relationship through guardianship to welfare benefit and to create ease of access to such a framework via courts tribunals or hearings, The Bounce of the Century they called it A ball kicked across Cardiff Arms Park in the dying minutes of a match between two of international rugby s fiercest rivals i Dragons and All Blacks i tells of what happened when Wales played New Zealand in The story is written from the memories of the men who played that day including Bob Scott and Bleddyn Williams and features contemporary accounts by those for whom the match was the highlight of a career The book relays the story of two teams and the men who played for them and charts the events of their lives how they got to that meeting point in Cardiff in December and what has happened to them in the half century since Dragons and All Blacks examines the remarkable relationship between two countries on opposite sides of the world showing how their rivalry has developed and changed over a century
