About this product
- DescriptionRIVERBALL is the fairy tale of Wharfedale Rugby Club - one of the wonderful amalies of modern sport. How has a small village in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales produced a club which has, for twenty years, played in English rugby's National League One? RIVERBALL answers that question by following the team around the country for the duration of the 2014-15 season, and by revealing Clarty, Tiff, Adge, and the other larger-than-life characters who, over the years, have brought about this freakish phemen. On a shoestring budget, but with an unparalleled wealth of spirit and humour, Wharfedale continue to defy the odds of the modern professional game. The backcloth of this portrait is the most beautiful ground in English rugby. The soundtrack to the book is the roar of the crowd at The Avenue - one of the most intense atmospheres in the sport. RIVERBALL is that rarest of sports books: it spills the beans on a feel-good secret.
