The IRB Rugby World Cup 2015 was magnificent--and this new edition of World Rugby Records looks back at that exciting event and forward to RWC 2019 in Japan.
Fully revised and updated to include the 2016-17 season, this book is a must-have for any fan eager to learn more about international rugby and its great history. Beginning with that apocryphal moment in 1823 when William Webb Ellis allegedly picked up a ball on the playing fields of Rugby School, it covers the legendary feats of sporting heroes such as Bryan Habana, Dan Carter, and Jonny Wilkinson, as well as contemporary stars such as Prince Obolensky, Colin Meads, and Anthony Foley. Action-packed photos bring the sport and its players to life, and the insightfully written record book continues to set the standard for rugby facts and stats.
