Description

Since the arrival of the New Zealand ‘All Golds’ who introduced the game to
Australian shores in 1907, rugby league has had a colourful and controversial
history. Rugby League Through the Decades is a celebration of each decade in
that history; showcasing champion players, countless matches and suburban
football clubs, many now gone forever. Including hundreds of images, many never
before published; rare memorabilia, season records and international details, this
books packs 110 years of sporting history into its 560 pages. Written in the style
of ‘unfolding history’ to give the reader a sense of ‘being there’ at each historic
moment in the game’s evolution, the different eras of the game are reflected in the language and fashions of
the times, and wonderfully portray the drama and emotion of the ‘greatest game of all!’
