We all like choosing the best-ever Welsh rugby team, but here is a XV with a difference. Here they are not players but writers.

They deserve the best team we can put out. Here it is, a selection of world-beating writing on Welsh rugby:The First XV. A collection of biographical, anecdotal, and literary essays on Britain's consuming passion for rugby, this account describes the exploits of the people’s heroes from Gould to Gareth Edwards. The beauty and exhilaration of the game is vividly recaptured in classic prose, as are the emotions and expectations of the most passionate rugby aficionados in the world. From the humorous to the erudite, this selection features work from the likes of Richard Burton, Frank Keating, John Morgan, Dylan Thomas, Alan Watkins, and Harry Webb.
