GENERALS OF THE RUGBY WORLD CUP

A history of the RWC as ‘told’ by the winning flyhalves

There has NEVER been a book like this one! We know of nothing else like it. This is a world first. The collection of original signatures is unique. It’s a superb piece of memorabilia. Download your FREE information brochure here.

This limited edition book celebrates the 25th anniversary of the RWC and covers the history of each tournament. It contains the original signatures of the first five-eighths of each winning country. The great names roll off the tongue – Grant Fox, Michael Lynagh, Joel Stransky, Stephen Larkham, Jonny Wilkinson, ‘Butch’ James …and now Aaron Cruden and Stephen Donald.

Generals’ is also a special record of the Rugby World Cup – a comprehensive appraisal and coverage of every tournament, superbly illustrated and with full results (scores, scorers, teams, officials etc) of EVERY game played over the 25 years since 1987. The first five-eighths of the victorious teams provide extra wonderful input with their analysis and stories and strategies. No other group of players has been more influential. They’re the ‘generals’ who move their players around rugby’s ‘chessboard’ – and the masterminds who share their coaches’ thinking and act as his eyes and ears on-field.

A quarter-century has passed since the first Cup tournament was played in New Zealand in 1987. Each of the seven RWCs has been exceptional in its way, with four nations having shared the top honours.
