English Rugby 101 is a compendium of fascinating facts, stats, stories, personalities and trivia – perfect for all fans of English rugby.

From the very first Test match against Scotland in 1871 all the way through to the present day, England’s rugby’s rich history is distilled into 101 facts, stats and stories. This entertaining volume is an instructive, if sometimes irreverent – but always affectionate – guide to some of the groundbreaking firsts, controversies, innovations, characters, achievements and disasters that have taken place in at Twickenham and around the world. Whether an expert or a novice, this is the perfect companion for those who follow the exploits of the red-rose warriors on the field and love to bask in light of their glorious (and sometimes inglorious) past.

John Griffiths is Britain’s foremost rugby historian and has worked as consultant on numerous books on the subject as well as authoring many himself, including British Lions, Rugby’s Strangest Matches, Rugby’s Greatest Characters, Behind the Dragon: Playing Rugby for Wales and Behind the Lions: Playing Rugby for the British & Irish Lions.
