About the book

‘I think you enjoy the game more if you don’t know the rules. Anyway, you’re on the same wavelength as the referees.’

Jonathan Davies

‘Rugby is a wonderful show. Dance, opera and, suddenly, the blood of a killing.’

Richard Burton

Some might say there’s nothing funny about scrums, cauliflower ears and the sin bin. Rugby Wit begs to differ. Bulging with wit, this book brings you hundreds of rugby-related quotes that range from the hilarious to the philosophical. Whether you know your league from your union or you think a hooker is a scantily-clad lady of the night, this chucklesome tome is worth a try.
