It is to these men, the heroes and sometimes villains, that this book is dedicated. From James Bevan in 1881 through to Colin Charvis and Gareth Thomas at the beginning of the 21st century, the role of captain has evolved in tandem with both the game itself, and the much wider sociological and technological developments that dominated the twentieth century. Now, after 125 years of Welsh rugby, it is time to try and put the record straight. Who is the most successful Welsh captain? Why have so many players only had one opportunity to lead their country? Which position has seen the most captains and which the least?
