Scottish Rugby 101 is a compendium of fascinating facts, quotes, stats, stories, personalities and trivia – perfect for all fans of Scottish rugby.
From the very first Test match in 1871 all the way through to the present day, Scottish 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 shaped the game north of the border. Whether an expert or a novice, this is the perfect companion for those who follow Scotland’s exploits on the field (and may serve as a handy distraction when things inevitably start to go pear-shaped).
Peter Burns is the author of When Lions Roared: The Lions, The All Blacks and the Epic Tour of 1971; Behind the Thistle: Playing Rugby for Scotland; White Gold: England’s Journey to World Cup Glory and Behind the Lions: Playing Rugby for the British & Irish Lions. It’s fair to say he likes rugby.
