Customer Review

on July 2, 2002
I bought this book based on the reviews, and I am dissappointed.
I am an intermediate player with a strong desire to improve, and possibly get into coaching after I stopped playing. I assumed that given the book's length that there would be much more detailed discussion of strategy, tactics, drills, etc. However, the book is more suited for a "coffee table". Even the description of the laws of the game at the end of the book are not very detailed, and offer no context for understanding current controversies in the sport (e.g. what should happen after a tackle, when a ruck is formed, what is permissible during rucks & mauls).
The book is loaded with pictures and the type is very large. It does describe the all of the positions and the basic mode of the play, but falls very short of helping intermediate through experienced players develop their skills, tactics, and knowledge of the rules of the game.
Buy it for the pictures or if you are new to the sport.
