Synopsis

England Rugby Heroes by Julian Bennetts

Nearly 1,400 men have represented England since the first international against Scotland in 1871, and there have been many heroic displays in the famous white shirt. England Rugby Heroes is the official illustrated RFU celebration of some of these great players. Drawing on almost 150 years of rich rugby heritage and featuring more than 70 carefully crafted biographies, England Rugby Heroes describes the each player's career, the highlights and their special skills - such as David Duckham's pace and swerve, Martin Johnson's strength and leadership and Jonny Wilkinson's kicking and tactical acumen - that elevated them above the rest. Written by respected England rugby authority Julian Bennetts, England Rugby Heroes is illustrated with more than 150 outstanding photographs and is a unique record of the greatest international ever to play for England.
