This could be the ideal rugby Bible!

 on 1 December 2016
By John
The dummies range of books are well known for their light-hearted and irreverent teaching of complex subjects and this book is no exception. A great read for both the novice and advanced player alike, this book is essential reading for supporters and players

great book

Ideal to learn all about Rugby Union. Bought this for husband as he started watching more rugby on tv and he had limited knowledge of rules etc. I’ve never really understood the game so book invaluable to us.

Old book but the general rules are still correct. The book was in pristine condition

Very comprehensive guide to rugby including loads of technical info so probably better suited to fanatical rugby enthusiasts rather than those who want to know the basics in order to follow a game on the pitch.

Brilliant book but not for Kindle

This is easy to read, understandable and well written. But this is not a good book to read on Kindle. Some of the diagrams are so small as to need a magnifying glass. And it’s more of a dip into book, not really a read from cover to cover guide. It helps to be able to look back at the diagrams when reading other parts of the book. I sent my copy back and purchased the paperback edition.

bought this book for my other half who has never seen a rugby game ever. very easy to read, easily understandable even for a non-sporty person, and has plenty to keep the reader entertained. even useful for someone who thinks they know quite a bit about rugby!
