            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.

            Rugby is great for the soul, but terrible for the body. Dylan Hartley came to England, on his own, at 16, to build a life and learn the dark arts of front row play. Fourteen years later, Eddie Jones named him captain of England for his first Six Nations as England coach - and the...y won the Grand Slam. Jones and Hartley forged an unusually close coach-captain relationship. But when a persistent injury kept Hartley out of action in the run-up to the 2019 World Cup, his dream of leading England on the biggest stage was shattered. In Body and Soul, Hartley tells a story of hard men and harsh truths. This is rugby in the raw, a unique insight into the price of sporting obsession. Hartley addresses the modern scourge of mental illness in the game, an issue associated with ever-increasing physical and psychological demands on international players. He describes with brutal clarity the terrifying uncertainty of persistent concussion, and the fear of the long-term damage caused by a game he fell in love with as a boy in rural New Zealand. Dylan Hartley has survived old-school brawls, and thrived in the high pressure, high performance culture created by Eddie Jones. His honesty and insight into leadership reveals him as an occasionally bad boy with consistently good intentions. Body and Soul shows us his life and his sport, warts and all.

            The leaping Springbok on the green jersey of South Africa is one of the most iconic emblems in world rugby. At the same time, no symbol in world sport has ever done so much to divide - and then unite - a nation. Respected by opponents and supported passionately by South Africans,... the Springboks have been a powerhouse rugby nation for over a century, yet the emblem that now sits alongside the Protea on the chests of the players was once a symbol of violent oppression in apartheid South Africa, the epitome of the white man's dominance over people of colour in the Republic. Told in the words of Springboks past and present, My Blood is Green explores what it means to play for South Africa - from schoolboy dreams to the sacrifices required to make it to the very top - as well as the myriad difficulties the players have faced over the years, from the horrors of apartheid through to the emerging rainbow nation in the 1990s and the multi-cultural team of today.
