Two books about rugby, short volumes, simple text with plenty of pictures, facts and anecdotes for the reluctant reader mainly boys.

The History of rugby is outlined for the World including the Islands of Fiji, Samoa, Tonga including the FORU nations. Is included is Women’s Rugby, Sevens, Wheelchair and Maori.

Great moments in the History of Rugby plus the whistle used by the referee in that controversial 1905 All Black loss against Wales.

Did you know that the same coin and whistle have been used in the first game of every World Cup tournament. Plenty of interesting stuff in this book.

rugby skillsThe Players , The skills and the Style is an attempt to teach the skills of rugby sometimes light heartedly using cartoon characters. However players who have been or are famous for particular skills are used to demonstrate their talents in a certain area.

Running skills, catching, tackling, passing, scrummaging and lineout techniques and not to forget the Sonny Bill off load.

Intermediate school and high school students will benefit most from these books. They can be read in less than an hour.
