Pwy yw'r pymtheg chwaraewr rygbi gorau a gynrychiolodd dîm y Llewod? Oedd Willie John McBride yn well na Martin Johnson? Oedd Barry John yn well na Johnny Wilkinson. Oedd unrhyw un yn well na Gareth Edwards? Yn y gyfrol hon mae Jonathan Davies yn datgelu ei farn bendant am chwaraewyr y Llewod.
Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Jonathan Davies is one of world rugby's best known personalities. For Neath, Llanelli and Wales, he was in the great tradition of Welsh outside halves, the dynamic embodiment of flair, guile and vision. He was odds-on favourite to be the Lions Test no. 10 in 1989, but his dramatic decision to 'go north' a few months before their tour to Australia that year denied Davies the place on the world stage which would have seen him ranked with Cliff Morgan, Barry John and Phil Bennett.
That stage was soon his, however, because as a rugby league player he scaled the heights of the game with Widnes, Warrington, Canterbury Bulldogs, North Queensland Cowboys, Wales and Great Britain. Since retiring, he has been in great demand as a broadcaster, hosting shows on BBC1 and S4C, and providing quick-witted insight as a summarizer and pundit on international match days. Jonathan Davies was awarded an MBE in 1996 and OBE in 2015.
Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Who are the 15 best players ever to have represented the British & Irish Lions?
Once every four years, mortal rugby enemies become comrades in arms as the elite international players of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales combine to create one team to take on the giants of the southern hemisphere. That team is the British and Irish Lions.
It is on Lions tours – to New Zealand, South Africa and Australia – that lasting reputations are forged in the heat of battle. It is where good players become great players.
But who are the greatest of the great? Who are the fifteen best players ever to have represented the Lions? Was Willie John McBride better than Martin Johnson? Was Barry John better than Johnny Wilkinson? Was anyone better than Gareth Edwards? As incisive and decisive as he was on the pitch, Jonathan Davies has the answer to all these questions and more.
