Rugby League Blog Book 2|
With Chris Irvine
Published by yfppublishing.com
Just when you thought the season was at an end, the Rugby League Blog Book 2 is back in giving fans an alternative take on a year in the life of "The Greatest Game". Chris Irvine, through his highly popular Times Online Rugby League Blog, adds his own 180-page flavour to a season of highs and lows, aided and abetted by supporters who gave their own blog commentary on the events of another memorable year.
From the Magic Weekend to Leeds Rhinos’ "threepeat" Grand Final celebrations, the World Club Challenge to antics Down Under, Chris Irvine tells it like it is, with inside help from guest writers and Co-operative ambassadors, England stars, Jamie Peacock, of Leeds, who has also contributed the book’s foreword, and Jon Wilkin, of St Helens.
Rugby League Blog Book 2 is packed with action and the downright daft from all corners of the Rugby League pitch. From Barcelona to Paris and Blackpool to Batley, the book is a fascinating and irreverent look at what really goes on in the world of Rugby League. It includes coverage all the top teams, leading players, coaches, fans, video refs, and cheerleaders, with subjects ranging from Big Bother, England Mole, Ellery on Ice and pie-eating to movie news, World Cup recriminations, mascots mischief and visa mayhem.
The book is published for a second year in association with The Co-operative, sponsors of the Championship and Championship One leagues.
Chris Irvine, The Times’ Rugby League Correspondent since 1992, said:
"The Times Rugby League Blog rejoices in the bizarre, scurrilous, plain daft and occasionally serious. With the blog and this second blog book, everyone gets to have their say. Rugby League is never short of one thing, and that’s opinions."
From now on reading is a sport.
The book is available from yfppublishing.com at £11.99.
