Rugby fans will delight in this extraordinary collection of astonishing true stories from the past 130 years, which reveal a bizarre side to the sport hitherto uncelebrated. Here, you'll find: the Irish international who arranged his marriage in order to qualify for leave of absence to play against England; the match in which a team of top soccer players beat their rugby counterparts literally at their own game; the riotous encounter that led to a seven-year lapse in the fixture; the international where an entire Wales side were sent off; and, the unknown who played for his country due to an administrative mistake.
