Summary

As far back as the 1830s, a form of rugby was being played at Rugby Public School in England. In 1863 the Football Association (FA) met to standardize a common set of rules between the kicking and running games, but failed to meet with the approval of the rugby fraternity. Twenty-one clubs refused to join the FA and in 1871 set up their own code of practice as The Rugby Union. Rubgy in Focus is a visual, historical record of the development and growth of the game, with background on more than a century of the most successful teams and the greatest matches, a players' hall of fame, and a guide to the hallowed grounds where the game is played. This story is told in almost three hundred photographs from the vast archives of the Press Association, whose photographers were on hand to capture the finest moments of the sport over more than a century.
