Book Description

29 Oct 2009
In RUGBY TALES, Lawrence Dallaglio recalls with affection and razor-sharp humour, the behind-the-scenes stories that have previously only been shared within the world of international rugby, together with some classics from his rugby-playing colleagues and mates.

There's the one about the 2003 World Cup winner who curtseyed to the queen and another featuring the rugby legend who was affronted by the suggestion that he had been out on the town until 3 a.m. days before a crucial match. 'Don't you look at me,' he cried indignantly, 'I got in at six.'

Featuring big games, bigger personalities, quick-fire banter and the odd pint or two, these are the best of the best from the legends of the dressing room, pitch and pub.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, but not a stay up all night book 13 April 2010
This book is an entertaining insight into the world of professional and amateur rugby. A great present for Dad's who love rugby.

It's not a book that you will feel compelled to sit down and read in one go - but to be honest I'd be suprised if that's what you are expecting. A good read for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny! 21 Nov 2009
I have only just got to Chapter 1 of this book and have already been howling laughing at some of the stories Lawrence tells. If the rest is as good as the first 20 pages or so, I am in for a treat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud 22 Jun 2014
By Colin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a great anecdotal view of many characters in the old amateur days of rugby union.
It dances from one story to another with great aplomb.
When looking for an easy read, and wanting to put a smile on your face pick this up.
