The quadrennial Rugby World Cup is taking place in New Zealand through October 23 and increasingly U.S. and Canada sports fans are taking notice of the third most watched sporting event in the world and asking more and more questions about the game of rugby.
And Rugby for Dummies is the best resource for answering all those questions of the novice fan while helping expand the understanding of the most veteran rugby player.
Rugby is one of the most exciting and widely-played sports in the world, with millions of devoted fans. While it may seem complicated to the newcomer at first glance, rugby is governed by straightforward laws (rather than rules) and offers a level of entertainment, unpredictability and camaraderie amongst players and fans that cannot be matched by any other sport.
Whether you’re a novice or a scrum veteran, Rugby For Dummies, 3rd Edition (Wiley; August 2011; Paper; $25.99) is the need-to-have guide to rugby in North America. Endorsed by USA Rugby and Rugby Canada, the official regulating bodies for the sport, the book provides readers with a look at how the game is played, offers strategies for winning, and covers every level of the sport, from high school to college (including women's rugby) to the international leagues.
With easy-to-understand explanations of rugby rules and positions, in-depth lessons on skills, fitness training and winning techniques, plus entertaining stories from rugby in North America and around the world, Rugby For Dummies is the definitive book on the sport.
