In Pursuit of Bill

 

Foreword by Tim Horan

In Pursuit of Bill is a unique narrative that encapsulates the history of how the Rugby World Cup came to fruition despite widespread opposition from the game's international governing body and a majority of those who represented the Home Unions of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. With insight from those administrators who shaped the inaugural tournament, and anecdotes from legendary players who triumphed in rugby's greatest arena, this book appeals to the newly-initiated rugby fans right through to the more hardened disciples of 'the game they play in heaven'.
