            The New Zealand All Blacks are one of the most recognisable and formidable teams on the world sporting stage. They are the record setters, the keepers of tradition, and the icons of the game of Rugby Union. They have been the benchmark for skill and execution ever since the oval ...shaped ball first arrived on New Zealand's shores, and are a team the rest of the world aspire to beat. They also hold the most victories of any Test nation, and the best win percentage overall, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder alongside some of the greatest sporting teams in the world of any code.Much has been written about the All Blacks and their legacy, but in this one book you get the full picture the Tests, the players, the results and the history - recollecting those memorable moments and marvelling at the exploits of some of world-famous All Blacks. From the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, when it was still an amateur game, through to their record-breaking exploits in 2016 at the height of professionalism, the All Blacks have enjoyed one of the highest levels of sporting success in the world. But the modern era is not the whole story.The New Zealand Rugby Companion fills in the essential gaps, provides the historic context and completes the total picture for all rugby lovers. Up to including the 2019.

            For a variety of reasons, Australian sport needed an uplifting, inspirational, feel-good story in 2019. The year was only little more than half over before one had well and truly arrived a" one of the best ever, in fact. Tennis star Ashleigh Barty captured the publicas imaginat...ion and admiration by not only winning a major tournament for the first time, the French Open, and ascending to the world No 1 ranking, the fi rst Australian woman to do so for 46 years, but by the humble, modest, gracious and yet iron-willed and fiercely focussed way she went about it. In all she did, she was the defi nition of the word classy. In short, she made Australia proud. Among those watching intently was one of Australiaas most experienced and respected sportswriters, Ron Reed, who decided that Bartyas breakthrough into the very top echelons of one of the nationas favourite sports needed to be recorded in forensic detail a" the wins, the quotes, the processes, the reactions of others, the team behind her, the background and the many reasons why she is such a true-blue Australian that she could never be mistaken for any other nationality. Barty: Power and Glory is the result. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Ron Reedas 50-plus years in sports journalism include decades as a columnist and feature writer for Australiaas biggest-selling daily newspaper, the Herald Sun, as well as two stints as Sports Editor of that paperas predecessor, The Herald, and one as Editor of the old Sporting Globe. His work has earned many awards and accolades, including Australian sportswriter of the year and a lifetime achievement award from Sport Australia, formerly the Australian Sports Commission. He has covered most of the worldas major sports events a" many of them multiple times a" in more than 30 countries, and is a tennis aficionado, having been a fi xture at the Australian Open as well as many Davis Cup ties. He is the author of the only book ever written about the legendary Frank Sedgman, Game Se

            An accomplished book about the genius and ingenuity of the game's greats (and the forgotten) and how they have shaped the game through the innovation of tactics. From Pagan's Paddock to Clarkson's Cluster , from Fitzroy's huddle to Sydney's flood , the tactics of Australian footb...all have become part of the vernacular. In this book, ABC journalist James Coventry reveals the secrets behind them all. You'll meet the German gymnast who taught Geelong how to break the game from its rugby roots; the two Test cricketers who became footy's first great coaches; and the water polo player who shaped the modern AFL. Along the way you'll learn how South Australia pioneered the flick pass ; how a rule suggested by Tasmania helped Collingwood win four straight flags; and how Fremantle revolutionised the use of the interchange bench. Time and Space is essential reading for any fan who wants to know why their team does what it does, and why it wins or loses.
