Description

* From bestselling author John Griffiths. * Jam packed with over one hundred years of strange rugby history! * The perfect gift for the rugby fan in your family! Rugby fans will delight in this extraordinary collection of astonishing but true stories from the past 130 years, which reveal a bizarre and hitherto uncelebrated side to the sport. Here you'll find, amongst many other bizarre events, the Irish international who arranged his marriage in order to play against England, the match in which a team of top soccer players beat their rugby counterparts at their own game, the riotous encounter that meant that particular fixture was subsequently abandoned for seven years, the international match in which an entire Wales side were sent off and the unknown player who was capped for his country due to an administrative mistake. Rugby's Strangest Matches is a fascinating compendium that is sure to amuse and entertain.
