Synopsis: The Treasures of Rugby Union is a celebration of one of the world's oldest international team sports (pre-dating international soccer by a year).

Packed with never-before-published memorabilia, courtesy of the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham?the home of English rugby?this book, fully revised and updated for the 2015 IRB Rugby World Cup, is part of Carlton Books' highly successful of Treasures series and is essential reading for every rugby fan.
