[First editio]

Tries & Prayers
Bill Ashurst is widely recognised as one of the outstanding second-row forwards in rugby league since the Second World War. This hard hitting autobiography covers his full rugby league career and much more, including: • Playing for Wigan, Penrith Panthers and Wakefield Trinity • His international matches for Great Britain • Coaching at Wigan, Wakefield Trinity and Runcorn Highfield • The abuse he suffered as a child • Discovering Christianity • Growing up in Wigan and his time playing football Bill’s career was often controversial. His book pulls no punches as he looks back on a bitter defeat in the 1970 Challenge Cup Final; a record unbeaten run with Wigan; playing for Penrith and his relationship with Mike Stephenson; falling out with Vince Karalius and leaving Wigan for a second time; being assistant coach at Wigan with Alex Murphy; coaching at Wakefield Trinity and being sent off in his final playing appearance for Runcorn Highfield at Central Park. The book also covers his family life and how discovering Christianity has changed him. Every rugby league fan will enjoy this riveting book.
