Riverball! : a rugby union fairy tale

WAS £9.99 £4.99 Check back later

Product description

Riverball is the fairy tale of Wharfedale Rugby Club - one of the wonderful anomalies of modern sport. How has a small village in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales produced a club which has, for twenty years, played in English rugby's National League One on a shoestring budget? Riverball answers that question by following the team around the country for the duration of the 2014-15 season, and by revealing the larger-than-life characters who have brought about this freakish phenomenon. It is that rarest of sports books: it spills the beans on a feel-good secret.
