Jam-packed with wall-to-wall infographics, statistics and insights into one of international sport’s greatest showpieces Rugby – The Tournament is the ultimate reference book for fanatics and newbies sport.
The book is a feast for the eyes from cover to cover as author Hankie Vogel takes the reader, or rather the viewer, on a spectacular journey through the history of Rugby World Cup tournaments.
The book includes statistics from all the tournaments including the nine finals, and the referees that took charge of the games. Vogel’s deep dive into the quadrennial showpiece highlights the game’s expansion and the players’ dramatic physical transformation.
Although the book focuses primarily on the men’s game, Vogel dedicated a chapter to the rise of women’s rugby which proves fortuitous ahead of the 2021 World Cup in New Zealand.
