Description

On the occasions I’ve received horrible abuse on social media, the messages of support and love from ordinary, decent people helped me carry on when there might have been occasions when I even thought of packing it in. Perhaps the best place to start with Nigel is with his first book Hanner Amser/Half Time, where he initially spoke about those dark times. There were periods when he took took many steroids or found comfort in eating too much and other passages in his life when bulimia affected him badly. Once on the SagePay system, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government.

But it is Owens' back story, an attempt to commit suicide in his mid-twenties and then having the courage to come out as gay in the macho world of rugby, which helps make him such a high-profile figure.

Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you.As for his biggest rugby regret, that didn't come in one of the many high-profile matches Owens took charge of, but actually in a Welsh Schools under-18s game when he sent off a Gowerton youngster when matters got out of hand between the teams. And even when he was accepted as the best in the world he still struggled to get a contract with the WRU!

With his contract with the Welsh Rugby Union having come to an end in 2020, he is free to reveal all about his career since his previous autobiography, 'Half Time', to speak his mind on various issues and to give the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019.It’s something many people clearly share, that feeling that here is someone with no side to him, as they say: an open book, a referee who has been loved by players even when they’ve been on the losing side. A real character, some of his famous put-downs whilst lecturing players, such as ‘This is Not Soccer’, have become huge social media hits. Indeed, there is a chapter in the autobiography devoted to each of Owens' famous sayings, there are so many of them, but he was utterly shocked they went viral. v=1667401267","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"Nigel Owens book | Welsh rugby books","id":30641765384429,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.

He is the current world record holder for most Test matches refereed and recently retired from being one of three professional referees at the Welsh Rugby Union.As far as I'm concerned though, anything I said was simply me being me as a referee, interacting with a player and just trying to get my point across.

Suddenly, a couple of policemen appeared, wearing those pointed helmets, and started racing after him. Fair to say it is a particularly eagerly awaited piece of work as Owens' story is simply like no other. Paul Abbandonato, who has collaborated with Nigel Owens on this autobiography, is a multi-award-winning journalist who has been Head of Sport for Wales Online and the mainstream Welsh newspapers for several years.
