A curious collection of true stories from the stranger side of rugby, featuring the the Irish international who arranged his marriage so he could play against England, the team of football players who beat their rugby counterparts at their own game, and the day the entire Wales team was sent off.

Here you'll find, among many other curious events, the Irish international who arranged his marriage in order to play against England, the team of top soccer players who beat their rugby counterparts at their own game, the day the entire Wales team was sent off, and when in an astonishing turn of events underdog Japan trimphed and beat South Africa (and who doesn't love an underdog).

This brand new edition, redesigned in splendid hardback for 2019, makes the perfect gift for the rugby obsessive in your life.
