Rugby: The Golden Age - Extraordinary Images from 1900 to 1980 by John Tennant
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Rugby The Golden Age is a unique collection of over 275 images from the last century, looking behind the drop goals and the mud-caked scrums to the core of a sport that is bloodthirsty, punishing, strategic and exhilarating all at the same time. The players who make the action are seen at repose, the helpers who are largely unnoticed at a game are framed in detail at their busiest and most intense, the stadiums that we usually think of as packed with supporters are seen empty, giving a flavour of the atmosphere and the passion behind the game that ordinary sporting photographs do not consider. Focusing on both the sport and the photography of the era it covers, Rugby: The Golden Age is a fresh take on the game, showing not just how the sport has developed, but why it continues to be loved and followed by so many people worldwide.
