‘A player I would go to war with.’
JPR Williams

‘On and off the field there was no fiercer or more determined competitor.’
Brynmor Williams


‘It was that marvellous quick pass from Fenwick that gave Phil Bennett that superb try.’
Bill McLaren


‘One of the outstanding centres of the 1970s.’

Willie John McBride


‘Steve was an exceptionally talented centre and a tremendous goal-kicker. If I had to pick a team, Steve would be an automatic choice in my rugby union and rugby league teams.’
Tom David


‘One of the most unselfish players I ever played with, who possessed a golden match-winning talent for creating a last-minute try or taking long-range goal-kicks which inevitably split the posts.’
Gareth Davies

‘Steve was a fine rugby footballer in both codes, a reliable kicker and solid in defence.’
Jim Mills

Career Statistics

'I, Steven Paul Fenwick, have a revelation to make that may surprise many readers. My first international representative rugby union honours were playing for England. There I was, in the line-up up for the English national anthem with the red rose on my chest, representing English Colleges against Welsh Colleges. I know this may come as a shock and it still feels as odd now as it did all those years ago, but bear with me, don’t judge me quite yet!'

An icon of Welsh rugby and one of the stars of the great Wales team of the 1970s, Steve Fenwick won four Triple Crowns, two Grand Slams, played in all four Tests of the 1977 Lions tour to New Zealand, and won two Welsh Cups with Bridgend RFC.

Witty and engaging with a very dry sense of humour, in Dragons and Lions, his long-awaited autobiography, Steve Fenwick tells the story of the schoolboy from Nantgarw who became one of the most celebrated players in world rugby. His hilarious anecdotes and fascinating recollections of a glittering career during a golden age of Welsh rugby will delight and enthral readers across the rugby world.
