The Complete Rugby Union Compendium

Foreword by Nigel Owens

 

eBook also available from the iBookstore

'Overall... this Compendium is the ideal companion for anyone with an interest in International Rugby, and its format ensures that it will be easily updated for as long as people continue to play the truly beautiful game of Rugby' – Craig Duffy, Mumble Words

The 2015 Rugby World Cup in England is set to be the biggest, brightest and most successful tournament to date, as the world’s top teams compete for the coveted Webb Ellis Cup and inspire new participants and fans worldwide across 44 days and 48 matches. With over three million tickets set to be sold for the matches, the Rugby World Cup will be viewed in over 207 territories worldwide.

However, for all the fanfare of the third biggest sporting event in the world (after the Olympics and FIFA World Cup), it is astonishing that, until now, there has been no single reference book in the marketplace that contains all the rugby internationals, in chronological order, played by the world’s major rugby nations since the game’s inception. Keith Young has spent six years compiling such a compendium to fill this gap in the market and has undertaken a colossal amount of research in the process.

The Complete Rugby Union Compendium contains over 5,200 entries, organized in such a way that details of all matches can be easily accessed by the reader. It is laid out in a visually engaging and informative format and will be invaluable to every dedicated rugby enthusiast.

A life-long rugby fan, Keith Young was born in South Wales but has lived in Dublin for most of his life. He’s a graduate Mathematician and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. His dual interest in rugby and statistics stimulated him to write this unique compendium.
