A visual history of rugby's greatest sporting event, this beautiful photographic book is a fascinating chronological exploration of the matches, teams, heroes and surrounding stories of the tournament. Each chapter covers a Rugby World Cup, starting with the inaugural competition in 1987 - in which New Zealand confirmed their status as the world's top rugby nation - to the historical 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa after the end of apartheid and the international sports boycott through England's fantastic win in 2003 breaking the southern hemisphere's dominance, up to the 2015 qualifiers. The book also looks ahead to Rugby World Cup 2019, with Japan as host city. Each photograph has been carefully selected to give a real glimpse into this great tournament. The ideal, collectable gift for any rugby fan, written by a rugby expert.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Striking images from the fringes of rugby featured in [this] new photo book, which also covers the big names and games. One for your coffee table. * Sport *
The Rugby World Cup by Brendan Gallagher is billed the definitive photographic history and that it surely is. * Epoch Times *
The work is much more than images, containing as it does anecdotes, charts, marker moments, the entire progression of the Cup that had its start as a limited summer event into what is now a global feast for sports fans everywhere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. * Sportsology.com *
