This is another paragraph Synopsis: At the heart of the England Rugby Union team's success in recent years, embracing Grand Slams, Triple Crowns and a World Cup Final appearance, has been the captaincy of Will Carling. Made captain at 22, he quickly became a leading national sporting figure, and began to accumulate a record number of England caps. Behind the public image lies a sensitive individual whose remote attitude has led some to question his approach. This biography explores the complexities and contradictions of the man, while chronicling his deeds for Harlequins, England and the British Lions.
