Description


Odd-Shaped Balls captures the humor, the agony, and the ecstasy of one of the world's most popular sports, rugby. The book is no less than a who's who of the game, with both old and young getting the opportunity to have their say. It looks at players such as Max Boyce, Keith Wood, Sean Fitzpatrick, Austin Healy, and Bill Beaumont and his streaker. All exponents of surrealism, comic genius, and savage wit, they offer a quirky insight into the sporting psyche as well as provide some riotous good laughs. With hundreds of funny stories, Odd-Shaped Balls is a light-hearted romp through decades of rugby tomfoolery that is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of all sports fans.
