Sir Colin Meads continues to be a fascination for the New Zealand sports public. Whenever he is asked to speak publicly, and that is very often even though he is now into his 70s, crowds of New Zealanders young and old come to hear his down-home ability to tell a tale. With his pinpoint recollections, his droll humour and an uncanny sense of timing, he is always a hit. In The A-Z of Meads there are revelations about his preference in music, his favourite recipes, even his favourite beers. He adds new slants to famous incidents he was involved in during his rugby prime. Author Keith Quinn gives Meads' friends the chance to tell their side of on-field battles they had with the mighty Meads. They make for absorbing and often hilarious reading.
