Product description

"Rugby league epitomises all of the qualities required of a soldier - skill, fitness, courage, teamwork, determination and a strong sense of discipline." Lieutenant General Sir Scott Grant, former President Army Rugby League. Rugby league only became a recognised sport in the Army in 1994. However, since then it has thrived, overcoming many obstacles on the way. This book covers the growth and development of the sport, including: • Inter-Services matches • The Army in the Challenge Cup • International matches and tours • The Lawson and Yeoman Cups • Combined Services rugby league • Profiles of players, coaches and managers and officials • Rugby league and the Army prior to 1994 • A tribute to Jack Harrison, the only professional rugby league player to win the Victoria Cross who was playing when he enlisted. Staff Sergeant Sean Fanning played professional rugby league for Leigh and Highfield. He has served as a medic in the Army for over 22 years. He has been on four operational tours overseas, including Afghanistan in 2012. He has played for and coached the Army and Combined Services Rugby League teams. He also captained the Great Britain Armed Forces team on two tours of Australia, including winning the 2008 Defence Forces World Cup. All royalties will go directly to Soldiers' League, which raises money for service charities.
