The big book of rugby - Leonardo Masini
One of the most noble sports: rugby. For some years now, this typically English sport has started to have a greater following amongst the public and its popularity has increased also in other countries. This the main reasons. Firstly, the genuine and solid philosophy it is based on. In a sports scene punctuated more by unpleasant news reports rather than on the results that are achieved, the rugby environment seems to be a healthy alternative to football made of real respect both on and off the field. Secondly, it is a team sport in which all the players need to collaborate very closely and there is less room for champions. The book opens with a historical overview, starting from the very beginning when this sport was a simple ball game and going up to the present day when it describes the major leagues and federations. It then goes on to analyse the various team players, the most important rules and patterns of play, followed by a brief look at the most representative national teams it with the description of the most important tournaments and an overview of the most emblematic curiosities of this sport.
