Description of this Book

This thrilling introduction to rugby helps kids get to grips with the rules of rugby, learn rugby skills, and gen up on rugby world records. The book looks at the history of the game, and touches on the main types of rugby, including Rugby Union, Rugby League, Rugby Sevens, and Rugby Tag. There are fascinating stats on every page, with profiles of rugby heroes - past and present. Featured throughout are clear step-by-step graphics showing tips and techniques of the game, such as how to pass the ball and how to tackle. Feature pages zoom in on aspects of the game, including scrums and line-ups. Its playful approach draws out rugby's unique features - why is a rugby ball the shape it is? What is the haka? What's the best way to score a try? The book profiles different nations that excel at the sport, including the New Zealand All Blacks. With colourful illustrations of rugby kits, plans showing rugby positions and pitches, and with a fun quiz at the back, this book is a must for every budding rugby player or fan!
