    Description

    This updated and revised new edition of 'Wallaby Gold' chronicles over 100 years of Australia's involvement in international Test rugby. From the first game played by an Australian rugby team against a side from Britain in 1899 to the last Test match of 2002, this volume comprehensively presents the rich and dramatic story of Australian rugby as it has never been told before.

    Author Peter Jenkins describes in lively style each year's events, drawing on hundreds of hours of original interviews conducted with key figures in the game. Arranged in chronological order, each year's overview is followed by a description of every Test played that year.

    Jenkins recreates the lost story of Australian Test rugby with verve and an eye for fascinating detail. Anecdotes are plentiful as he introduces the reader to a cast of vivid characters and their deeds, both on and off the field. At times controversial, and always in the thick of the action, the sheer scope of this porting saga makes an immense contribution to our knowledge and appreciation of the game.

    At once sweeping in scale and absorbing in detail, 'Wallaby Gold' also presents a comprehensive and revealing statistical section plus forewords written specially by ten of the greatest living Wallaby captains.

    Lavishly illustrated with more than 300 rarely seen photographs, there is no other book which so brilliantly honours the spirit and events which have made Australian Test rugby what it is today.
