Covering international and domestic players, matches and tournaments, and everything from the game's birth at Rugby School in the early 19th century to the present day, this book contains every imaginable fact about rugby. Who is the most capped international player? What is the highest number of points scored in a test debut? Did the U.S. win an Olympic gold medal in rugby? Packed with anecdotes and statistics, this is the last word in the game "played by hooligans and watched by gentlemen."
