The Random History of Rugby Hardback Book

Hapless Hookers & Useless Flankers

This book has everything you ever wanted to know about the not-so-beautiful game of rugby but were afraid to ask. Small enough to slip into a pocket or bag in readiness for the after-match discussion in the pub, the book contains enough stories and cartoons to keep the reader amused for hours.

Beginning with the legendary moment when schoolboy William Webb Ellis picked up a football and ran with it, the book continues with the introduction of rugby to Wales by one Reverend Rowland Williams and then expands into the evolution and worldwide spread of the sport and generally romps through a scrum of interesting and hilarious tales and stories, including the birth of Northern Union, now known as Rugby League, the invention of the scrum by England captain Wavell Wakefield in 1920 and of course, the famous and first ever streak at Twickenham by Erica Roe. The book is enlivened throughout with cartoons and illustrations by Tony Husband. Author Iain Spragg has clearly enjoyed compiling this little history: from the peckish Frenchman and his ill-timed baguette to the Italian dog with a taste for prop-forwards, to the AWOL All Black who disappeared Down Under and Sir Clive’s embarrassing first day at Twickers.

This slim hardback book with a deep red cover makes a lovely gift for sports fans and rugby enthusiasts, especially fathers, mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers who enjoy playing and/or watching the game. The book makes a welcome stocking filler at Christmas or an inspired birthday, or Father’s Day gift.
