From the very first game played by an Australian rugby team against a side from England in 1898 to the last Test match of 2002 in November, this extraordinary book tells the complete story of more than 100 years of Australia's involvement in international Test rugby. Superbly designed, printed and bound, with nearly 300 colour and black and white photographs, this fully updated and expanded edition of the only book to cover Australia's history in Test rugby is the 'must have' commemorative edition for every fan of the game. This revised and updated edition includes the last four years of tests, ready for the onslaught of the World Cup in October and November this year. Arranged in chronological order, each year includes an introduction with anecdotes drawn from hundreds of original interviews conducted by the author, and is followed by an account of each game played in that Test series, detailing the highs and lows as well as the drama, the characters and the humourous moments from 104 years of the game. Ten of the greatest living rugby captains have written individual introductions to the book, and the most thorough statistical section ever published for the game provides every fact and figure any rugby buff could ever want. Throughout the book are also hundreds of rare and iconic photographs never seen before. 506 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos.
