The Rugby World Cup is a modern-day phenomenon, and now the third largest international sports event in the world - only eclipsed by the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup. In Pursuit of Bill describes the history of the game, from its beginnings at Rugby School in England to the founding of the modern game, and breaks down each tournament in which countries vie for global dominance to possess The Webb Ellis Cup - affectionately known as 'Bill' - and named after William Webb Ellis, a pupil at Rugby School. This up-to-the-minute second edition will include play-by-plays from the 2011 Rugby World Cup, as well as insights from administrators who shaped the game, anecdotes from legendary players and comprehensive statistics of every tournament played. Drawn from hundreds of interviews with key figures in the game, it is a book for newly initiated rugby fans and devotees of 'the game they play in heaven'. 2011 World Cup results also included.
