Here’s the Wales Rugby League Team Big Jim Mills Book Preview
Jim Mills truly was a ‘Rugby Giant’. At six foot four inches tall and a playing weight of 18 stone, he made a huge impact as a fast-running, ball-handling prop forward. He was also one of the toughest forwards in professional rugby league at a time when every team had an ‘enforcer’ and contested scrums saw forwards often literally fighting for the ball. Jim won every honour in the game in a 17-year rugby league career.
