The Sky Sport Rugby Almanack is New Zealand rugby's book of record and is widely regarded as the finest publication of its type in the world. Now in its 74th edition, the 2008 Sky Sport Rugby Almanack records another huge year, including the Rugby World Cup, the Air New Zealand Cup and Super 14 competitions, the Bledisloe Cup and the Tri-Nations competition. As well, the Almanack again presents all the facts and figures from the previous season's first-class rugby.
Clive Akers and Geoff Miller are New Zealand's foremost rugby historians and statisticians. Akers has been a co-editor of the Almanack since 1995 and he was joined in 1999 by Geoff Miller, who is honorary statistician for the NZRFU and a columnist in the weekly magazine Rugby News.
