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--and continuing through the historical 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa after the end of apartheid and the international sports boycott, England's fantastic win in 2003 which broke the southern hemisphere's dominance, and the 2015 qualifiers. The book will also look ahead to Rugby World Cup 2015, with Japan as host country. Each photo has been carefully selected to give a real glimpse into this great tournament.

The ideal collectible gift for any rugby fan, written by a rugby expert.
