With this witty and imaginative guide to rugby laws, ex-referee Derek Robinson takes the rugby lawbook and turns it inside-out to explain clearly and concisely how, where and in what situations the various laws apply. Informative explanations are accompanied by annotated illustrations of on-field play.
