A little dry in style, may be, but a very useful manual.

Brilliant & witty book to help basic understanding of the game. It won't help you become a ref, but it was perfect for me to appreciate the game from an almost non-existent understanding. Some very good gags thrown in for good measure.

If you're a footy fan tired of overpaid mercenaries masquerading as players & Rupert Murdock ripping the game from the working man, give this book and the sport of rugby a go.

I bought this book because my 12 year old son plays rugby for a local club. I had never taken much interest in the game before so needed something to help me understand what was happening on the pitch. The book only took a few hours to read from cover to cover but I am sure I will be referring to it again in the future. Now I understand the rules I actually enjoy watching the games a lot more. No more standing mystified by the touch line for me! I can now understand and talk about rugby confidently with some of the more knowledgeable parents. I agree with the previous reviewer that it does not contain everything about the game but it has given me a great introduction to the rules and rugby culture and helped me to enjoy watching my son play so much more.

This is a great little book if you know nothing (or very little) about the laws of Rugby and want to understand what's going on during a game.

It enhanced my limited knowledge (from school boy Rugby) and I now find I can appreciate the game far more. The best use of the book was for my wife who didn't understand the rules at all but can now tell you what is going on for 90% of moves and breakdowns (even the most experienced arm chair fans have some difficulty following everything that happens).

Reading the book before the 6 nations made a real difference to our viewing pleasure. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others (and have done so already to friends and relatives).

Very quick and efficient service. Having the book has helped my husband to become a very good armchair referee during the recent six nations championship!

I know very little about rugby but my 12 year old son is really enjoying this book. It's amusing and is teaching him things he hasn't been told yet. Would buy again as a present for one of his rugby mad friends.
