The Original Rules of Rugby

The complex evolution of rugby football and the intriguing history behind its shifting rules tell a fascinating story which is both pertinent and illuminating to fans today. This book brings together the original rules of the game drawn up at Rugby School in 1845 and the first rules of the Rugby Football Union in1871, showing how they changed the sport. It also uncovers the truth behind the myths and legends which have glorified the great game, some of which are little more than sporting hagiography. Written by Jed Smith, curator at the Museum of Rugby. Published by Bodleian Library, UNiversity of Oxford ISBN 1-85124-371-2
