Summary

Bloomsbury is proud to publish the Rugby Classics--two of the most important and influential books ever written on the game of rugby. Thousands of players and coaches around the globe have benefited from the concepts and methods in these books, equipping them with the coaching skills and strategy to play the very best in fifteen-a-side rugby.

Total rugby is the antithesis of play-safe rugby--an open, ebullient game in which every player is encouraged to show what he can do as an attacker, defender, and supporting player. Highlighting inspirational rugby coach Jim Greenwood's radical examination of every facet of the game and his ability to clearly convey the wealth of knowledge he accumulated over many years in the sport, Total Rugby has become one of the game's most seminal coaching manuals.

Author Biography

Jim Greenwood was one of world's most highly regarded rugby coaches and was a distinguished player before shaping the game internationally with his renowned coaching techniques. He was the first rugby coach to be elected to the National Coaching Foundation's inaugural Hall of Fame and was also elected as an official Legend of Scottish Rugby. His two books, Total Rugby and Think Rugby, are considered to be seminal works on the game.
