In 1987 the first Rugby World Cup was held in New Zealand. The tournament returns there in September 2011 for the seventh staging of the RWC, which is now the biggest event in the rugby calendar. Much has changed since 1987. The game was still amateur then; it is now fully professional at the top level: Rugby has changed arguably more than any other sport. The More Beautiful Game is the fascinating, definitive history of the game as actually played on the field, tracing its evolution from the unstructured (and frankly anarchic) early days to the highly organized professional game of today. The changing rules of the game, the strategies evolved to deal with change and in some cases to initiate change, the players and coaches as well as the different cultures found amongst the key rugby-playing nations - all find their part in this unfolding story as told by two experts of the game from on and off the field.
