The Rugby World Cup is a modern-day phenomenon, and now the third largest international sports event in the world - only eclipsed by the Olympic Games and the Football World cup. The competition has developed at an unprecedented rate since the inaugural event in 1987, from a humble amateur festival to an international sporting showcase. "A history of the Rugby World Cup" begins with a history of the game, from its beginnings at Rugby College, through the difficult transition from the amateur code to modern professionalism and breaks down each of the event packed tournaments that have taken place, including full details of the latest in 2011. This book has insights from administrators who shaped the game, anecdotes from legendary players and comprehensive statistics of every tournament played. Drawn from hundreds of interviews with key figures in the game, it is a book for both newly initiated rugby fans and devotees of modern day rugby.
