Product description


Steven Gauge is a supremely funny writer and master bluffer who ll show you how to get ahead in rugby even if - like him - you possess barely a modicum of sporting talent. This book is a worthy successor to Michael Green s classic The Art of Coarse Rugby. --Toby Harnden, Sunday Times Washington Bureau Chief And Winner Of The 2012 Orwell Prize For His Book Dead Men Risen

Steven Gauge has captured the heart and soul of the game in this entertaining book which will leave players and fans alike concerned about their cover being blown. --James Hutchinson, Founder, The Rugby BLOG

Everything a complete newcomer to the sport needs to bluff their way through those Six Nations afternoons at the pub, while even hardened rugby fans will find something to amuse and inform them while they play with their odd-shaped balls. --Sarah Bridge, Author OF First Catch Your Husband

About the Author

Steve Gauge played the least amount of rugby he could get away with at school in Wimbledon, South London, before perfecting the art of avoiding games masters and any sporting activity whatsoever. A few decades later, as part of a comprehensive midlife crisis, he found himself as captain of the third-worst rugby side in Surrey, Warlingham forth XV. In the heroic weekly efforts to assemble a team, he bribed, bullied and cajoled some deeply unfit and very unwilling men of all shapes and sizes to have a go at picking up an oval ball and running with it. He also unhelpfully extended the careers of several other players who really should have retired sooner. Unable to survive on a meagre earnings from the sales of his first rugby book, My Life as a Hooker, Steven is hard at work in the rough and tumble world of political consultancy. He feels a lot safer there than at the bottom of a heaving pile of 15 malodorous and overweight men.
