Reflective but humorous – author Chris “Gus” Chesney walks down memory lane in his latest book and shares the untold and, to all but those who can similarly recall such off-the-field escapades, the not wholly familiar story of the less publicized aspects of Rugby Union. It being a family sport, he conveys a sense of genuine love for and lasting interest in the sport both as he knew it when a player himself and also today, with the identical and virtually inherited participation of his sons in the game. As with his weird and enjoyable experiences he has shared with us in previous books, he opens the door to his smile-inducing memories of times and places gone by, when Rugby Union was a totally amateur sport. Whilst it has now grown substantially in popularity, world-wide, over the last 40 years, it is now having to cope with the new challenges brought about by the advent of a professional element of the game, and “Tales from a Small Rugby Club” sheds a heartening light on what remains its basic roots.
