Subtitled 'Violence and Foul Play in a Hooligans' Game Played by Gentlemen', The Worst of Rugby is one of the best-selling titles in Pitch's popular 'Worst of Sport' series. The book takes a humorous look at the whole catalogue of foul and dastardly behaviour associated with the sport - stamping, gouging, arguing, drunkenness - on and off the pitch. The Worst of Rugby gets right under the skin of game: from the superstars to the lowliest supporter, the book reveals the true nature of the contest and those who live for it. Presented in loving detail across 15 chapters, here are all the very worst elements of rugger. From the worst imaginable gamesmanship to the worst wagers and injuries; from the worst missed kick to the worst instances of cheating, brawling and bleeding on teammates, the book will simultaneously delight and appal any player, supporter or aficionado of the great game.
