Overview

Rugby fans will delight in this extraordinary collection of astonishing true stories from the past 130 years, which reveal a bizarre side to the sport hitherto uncelebrated. Here you'll find:the Irish international who arranged his marriage in order to qualify for leave of absence to play against England. the match in which a team of top soccer players beat their rugby counterparts literally at their own game. the riotous encounter that led to a seven-year lapse in the fixture. the international where an entire Wales side were sent off. the unknown who played for his country due to an administrative mistake.
