The Book

Every four years, national teams representing the 20 best rugby union countries in the world go head-to-head for global supremacy to claim The Webb Ellis Cup – the winner’s trophy affectionately known as “Bill” by some. From an amateur festival of rugby in 1987 to the vibrant and historic tournament hosted by Japan in 2019, the Rugby World Cup is the third largest sporting event in the world and a lifeblood for the growth of the game and the World Rugby international governing body.

A Complete History of the Rugby World Cup touches on the history of rugby union, and its evolution to professionalism, while also recounting the heated boardroom politics that played out before the pinnacle event was first established. This most recent fourth audiobook edition captures all the drama and excitement across the nine tournaments played from 1987 to 2019, and is a must listen for both newly initiated fans and the more seasoned devotees of “the game they play in heaven”.
