Rugby in global perspective : playing on the periphery / ed. by John Harris... [et al.]

Harris, John, (1972)

Edited by Routledge. London - 2020

This book critically examines how rugby union has developed in recent years, in nations on the periphery of the sport. Focusing on people and places on the fringes, it examines contemporary issues and challenges within the global game. Such a collection is timely as the sport’s governing body seeks to expand influence and participation beyond the eight core nations, with the Rugby World Cup in Japan being the first time that that tournament has taken place outside of the core. Presenting case studies from Europe, Africa, North and South America, Asia and the Middle East, it offers an interdisciplinary account of a sport that is undergoing a period of significant change. Through examination of topics such as the development of rugby sevens and the growth of women’s rugby, it considers what the future may hold for the sport.
