The Official England Rugby Scrapbook is an exciting new book that charts the progress of the national side as they take the sport they invented to the world. This journey of discovery and celebration brings the England story to life thanks to a huge selection of dramatic, rarely seen images and memorabilia.
Legendary No.8 Lawrence Dallaglio provides a unique and exclusive insight into his playing career by digging out his personal collection of shirts and medals as he talks Red Rose fans through his proudest moments in England’s rugby history.
With commentary from current elite squad members such as captain Chris Robshaw, Owen Farrell and Billy Twelvetrees, the scrapbook presents a comprehensive overview of life in the England camp, including a rare glimpse into the inner workings of Stuart Lancaster’s team, revealing some dressing room secrets and favourite recollections.
Revisiting the playing fields of Rugby School and the codifying of the oval game, fans are also able to indulge in an amazing gallery of unique artefacts, including forgotten documents chronicling the sport’s formation as well as the original plans for turning a ‘cabbage patch’ into the world’s premier rugby venue.
