Book Description

17 Nov 2008 Little Books
 

The major northern hemisphere rugby tournament, contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales, has a fascinating history. Its highlights, disasters, major players, outstanding matches and vital statistics are vividly portrayed in this engrossing book, since the first game between England and Scotland in 1871. As well as the on-field thrills and spills, the human side of the tournament is also explored in detail. One team was discovered to have hidden daggers in its pockets. Two famous players were banned for playing an impromptu post-match tournament with the Calcutta Cup in Edinburgh’s Princes Street. Chris Oti, the first black player to represent England for 80 years, was unwittingly responsible for Swing Low, Sweet Chariot becoming England’s unofficial rugby anthem. The story of the Six Nations tournament is a hugely absorbing one. It is done full justice in this informative and highly entertaining book for rugby followers. This is the updated 2nd edition.
