The Treasures of Rugby Union is a celebration of one of the world's oldest international team sports (pre-dating international soccer by a year). It covers the development of the game from the moment William Webb Ellis is reputed to have picked up a ball and run with it during a soccer match at Rugby School in 1823 to the ultra professional game of today and all that happened in between. It focuses on the sport's biggest nations, provides a history of some of rugby's quirkier aspects-such as the British and Irish Lions and Barbarians-and includes a section on sevens rugby, as well as a report on every Rugby World Cup. Packed with never-before-published memorabilia, courtesy of the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham-the home of English rugby-this book, fully revised and updated for the 2015 IRB Rugby World Cup, is part of Carlton Books' highly successful ofTreasures series and is essential reading for every rugby fan.
