At this particular time of year Rhino would like to recommend to our friends and clients: ‘The Final Whistle: the Great War in Fifteen Players’
by Stephen Cooper. It’s a history of the Great War 1914-18, told through the stories of 15 men, who all played for Rosslyn Park , the club to which our former Chairman for 18 years, the legendary Andy Ripley, belonged. It’s also a ‘love song’ to the game of rugby.
Published by The History Press, it has received good reviews from Fergal Keane and Ian Hislop. The Foreword is by Bill Beaumont, Chairman RFU and all royalties go to charity – Prostate Cancer UK (for Andy Ripley) and RP Injury Trust, which helps young sports-people with life-changing injuries.
