            Rugby Folklore (EPUB ebook)

            By Elliott, Matt

            From superstitions to send-offs, All Black nick-names to on-field battles: Rugby Folklore is a miscellany of stories, quotes, and facts that are part of the fabric of New Zealand rugby. New Zealand has played, celebrated and commemorated rugby like no other country. We took to th...e game in extraordinary numbers in the late nineteenth century. Rugby was the game for all. It became a sport in which names like Grizz, Tiny, Guzzler, Pinetree, Rimu, and the Paekakariki Express have made us feared and revered as the greatest rugby nation on earth.Rugby Folklore is a book about matches won and lost, rivalries built and legends made. From on-field controversies, rugby songs, and what makes an All Black to Hika's great try, 'Bring Back Buck' and wind at Athletic Park so strong that Don Clarke watched a ball kicked for touch sail back over his head. Covering the earliest days of club-rugby through to the modern-day All Blacks, this collection of interesting facts, unforgettable quotes and tall tales will you leave you looking on our national game with pure unbridled pride ... and a little disbelief!'Remember that rugby is a team game; all 14 of you make sure you pass the ball to Jonah.' - Fax to the All Blacks during the 1995 RWC

            Robbie Deans: Red, Black & Gold
              

            Robbie Deans: Red, Black & Gold (EPUB ebook)

            By McILraith, Matt

            For fans of Rugby Union in Australia the appointment of a coach from NZ, Australia's biggest rival, was a shock. But with poor performances the order of the day for our national team something radical had to be done. An All Black, the pin-up boy of the Canterbury team of his gene...ration and a rebel with the Cavaliers during a 12-year playing career, Robbie Deans was appointed as Australia's first foreign-born coach. What followed was a career as one of the best coaches of the modern era. After 17 years coaching professionally, Robbie still boasts a 70 per cent success rate. He remains Super Rugby's most successful coach, six seasons after his departure from the Crusaders. Now he reveals the old-fashioned values that have underpinned his career and breaks the silence on his removal from the Wallabies coaching job, examining in depth five turbulent years where the systemic and cultural challenges off the field were every bit as daunting and unrelenting as was confronting the best team on the planet. Featuring accounts by Wallaby David Pocock , All Black Dan Carter, players on both sides of the ditch, coaches, media commentators like Peter FitzSimons and administrators, this is a story told by those who know Robbie best.
