The history of Rugby is packed with strange events, humour and incident.

It might be the dog that once helped Cambridge to victory in the varsity match. Then there was the England player who smacked into the goalpost as the try line beckoned at his feet – thus handing victory to bitter rivals Scotland. Or what about the British rugby team that was beaten to the silver medal in the Olympic Games … by a team from Germany.

As the Trivial History of Rugby sidesteps its way through rugby’s fascinating facts, it opens up an invaluable, informative and amusing insight into the rich and varied past of a great sport.
