Rugby league A Critical history
Top customer reviews
Every year since, Rugby League's players have continued to deliver, but under the surface the arguments continue to rage as Rugby League remains the most political of sports.
This book does much more than record the tries and the trophy gatherers.
It examines the key decisions that have been made along the way as the game, particularly in Britain, continues to search for its big breakthrough.
With a foreword by Garry Schofield OBE, the book examines the international scene from 1980, the domestic games in Britain and Australia as well as comprehensive histories of Australia's State of Origin and the highly coveted Golden Boot award.
The author has also compiled a list of the best 100 players from the last 33 years and there is a full statistical wrap up of all Great Britain and England internationals, all the major cup finals, award winners and world XIIIs.
My one beef about the book is that the photos would really help a newcomer by including captions, rather than requiring you to read the whole page opposite and 'google' the images of the people featured to see if they match the pictures!
However read it to learn about the game, to learn about the stats and then argue with the choices of the top 100 RL players in the last 33 years. Looking forward to his next book.
