LOCK, STOCK`N BARREL.
Author: Andy Haden
"When Andy Haden completed work on Boots 'n all in 1983 he believed he had worthily encapsulated the game's major issues. It would be, he felt, many, many years before a sequel needed writing.
But scarcely had Haden rested his pen than sensation followed sensation: He was summoned before the NZRFU to answer charges of professionalism forcing him to opt out of the 1984 All Black tour of Australia; He became embroiled in the fated 1985 All Black tour of South Africa.
He participated in the infamous Cavaliers tour of South Africa; He captained Auckland to Ranfurly Shield glory on Lancaster Park; He suffered dismay at what he terms the continuing mixture of incompetence and secrecy that surrounded the game's decision makers.
Lock, Stock 'n Barrel is another stimulating, enlightening and outspoken book by a phenomenon of the rugby world.
From his unique position as an All Black, Cavalier, writer, broadcaster, sports marketer and Kiwi bloke, he tells the inside story of the Cavaliers tour, the initial intrigue surrounding the planning and departure, the problems encountered in South Africa and the punishment and friction that ensued back home.
He again puts rugby's top administrators through the hoops, he makes enlightening comparisons between the game in the 1970s and today, he gives the media another rucking (and comes up with some fresh minnows), he explains why Auckland has become such a great provincial team and philosophises on what is required to beat them. He forecasts what lies ahead for rugby. Lock, Stock 'n Barrel, lavishly illustrated, is a must for every rugby and sports person's bookshelf (de la solapa del libro)
