The world of rugby league is bathed in the sunlight of its own romance, but few stories resonate through the decades like that of Kel Coslett. To the fans of St Helens RLFC, Coslett is remembered as the club's highest ever points scorer, one of its finest captains, Lance Todd Trophy winner and a gentleman who continues to act as an ambassador to this day. But there is so much more to the story than that, and in 'A Welsh Saint: the Kel Coslett Story', the man himself tells it all. From the early days of a childhood in the industrial valleys of South Wales, through his success in rugby union with the giants of Llanelli and Aberavon, to the night when he came home to find two men at his mother's kitchen table, with an offer to head north, that would change his life forever. But there are lows as well as highs including the constant pressure to perform, serious injury threatening his playing career, fallings out with the 'men in suits', and adapting to the demands-and sometimes hostility-of being a coach. It's not all work, work, work of course, and there are plenty of recollections of the lighter side of being a professional sportsman.

All this is told with the modest understatement that has made Coslett so popular within the game. It's the no-nonsense story of a no-nonsense bloke who still can't believe his luck.
