Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with short tears at the head, tail and the corners. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

5th Impression. [First Edition: 1960] From the cover: “Anyone who plays Rugby Union very soon discovers there are two distinct versions of the game — Rugger and Coarse Rugger. Rugger has fifteen fit and rugged young men a-side and finds inspiration in the deeds performed at Twickenham and Cardiff Arms Park. In Coarse Rugby, however, neither side is ever composed of fifteen men, inspiration comes only after the match (and seldom has anything to do with the game!), and the whole object is to win with the least possible exertion.”
