"I've been watching the 6 Nations since the competition was just the 5 Nations. In all that time, I've been thoroughly entertained, while so much of the game has remained a complete mystery to me . . . The meat in 'Rugby Union for Dummies' is in Part II, especially Chapter 4 which explains the positions on the pitch and Chapter 5 the laws of the game. The book has a very broad content and not all was of interest to me, such as the sections on coaching and training . . . overall there is plenty for the novice to tackle." - Goodreads Review.
