But while Owens is candid about events that happened, for the most part this is a hugely positive book which he feels will make the reader smile - 'even bring an occasional tear to the eye', he says. But not only did he survive his suicide attempt but positively thrived, officiating at four World Cups, taking charge of more Six Nations games than anyone else, blowing the whistle at seven European Cup Finals and presiding over some of the best games of rugby ever played, such as the high-octane try-fest that was the New Zealand victory over South Africa in Johannesburg in 2013. With his contract with the Welsh Rugby Union having come to an end in 2020, he is free to reveal all about his career since his previous autobiography, Half Time, to speak his mind on various issues and to give the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019. I know from personal experience what some people may be going through, those who might be struggling coming to terms with their sexuality in the way I once did.

The story of the second half of Nigel's career as one of the most famous referees in World Rugby and one of only two Welsh referees ever to officiate at a Rugby World Cup Final, including the full story of his last Rugby World Cup in 2019. I had no idea, was merely dealing at the time with a case of dissent I didn't want creeping into rugby. I'm just happy, however, if my own story helps others out there who might find things difficult from time to time.

But it is Owens' back story, an attempt to commit suicide in his mid-twenties and then having the courage to come out as gay in the macho world of rugby, which helps make him such a high-profile figure.

As does his love for his parents, and for the west Wales community where he grew up and so much more. I own but haven't yet read his previous memoir, Hanner Amser, I chose to get the original Welsh edition and I have too many books ahead of it on my list right now. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and all messages from SagePay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. As for his biggest rugby regret, that didn't come in one of the many high-profile matches Owens took charge of, but actually in a Welsh Schools under-18s game when he sent off a Gowerton youngster when matters got out of hand between the teams. Perhaps the best place to start with Nigel is with his first book Hanner Amser/Half Time, where he initially spoke about those dark times.
