In the Line of Fire

In the Line of Fire

‘”Draw”‘ is an inadequate way to describe what the Lions did here. They stopped one point short of a miracle.’ Daily Telegraph

Warren Gatland’s In the Line of Fire is the ultimate chronicle of this summer’s remarkable Lions tour to New Zealand – home of the fearsome All Blacks, the double world champions – which culminated in an historic and nerve-shredding series draw.


The book is the Head Coach’s candid record of the perspiration and inspiration, the withering ferocity,and the turbulent peaks and troughs which go hand-in-hand with one of sport’s toughest challenges.

It gives rugby fans an unparalleled front-row seat with the squad and coaching team during every facet of preparing for and executing a successful tour on the opposite side of the planet, recounting intriguing details on everything from pre-tour planning and strategy, to on-tour experiences, analysis and decision-making.
