“If you do know Harvey, he’s in this book, just as you know him, on every page. If you don’t know Harvey, by the end of reading this, you’ll wish you did, and you’ll wish you’d been there at some point along the way during this affectionate trawl through life.”

John Inverdale

“This is a book written by a man who lives for the game of rugby, from his early days playing for Northampton culminating in playing for England. Harvey fills me with affection for what is the greatest game on earth and compliments it with some touching insights into the game and the great people who recently played it.”

Rick Stein OBE

“I don’t know whether to apologise to you all or claim slight credit for persuading Harvey to document his memoirs. Little did I realise what recollection he had for the finer details of his life. I only wish I had his zest for living and continuous positivity which rubs off on all he meets. This is a great way to remember how you met Harv, and believe me if you don’t recount when you bumped in to him he does!!”
