French Rugby League.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Forbidden Game: The Untold Story of French Rugby League (Paperback)
Difficult to imagine that the French establishment could have outlawed a sport for its honesty in paying players and turning a blind eye to the 'dark side' that payed the but denied it.
I believe the practice, though not the banning, was the reason so many older followers of the two rugby codes have issues with each other but growing up playing football I knew nothing of this.
A very good read if you are at all interested in Rugby League or the history of sport in general.
