Twickenham by Iain Spragg


Twickenham by Iain Spragg

As Twickenham celebrates its 100th year, this spectacular book tells the story of the world's most famous rugby stadium. Packed with photographs from the RFU's own archives, original match programmes, tickets, posters and historic items from the stadium's World Rugby Museum, its 240 pages are a wonderful journey through a century of Twickenham memories. An official RFU publication, Twickenham - 100 Years of Rugby's HQ covers everything from the story of how an isolated area of orchards and market gardens became an international sporting venue to a behind the scenes tour of the modern state-of-the-art stadium. It features the memories of some of the great players who have graced the hallowed turf, original match reports from the greatest matches played at HQ and a detailed look at the best tries ever scored there. Lavish, colourful and packed with wonderful and evocative images, Twickenham is a fitting tribute to 100 years of the headquarters of rugby.
