Now in its 23rd year, the Wooden Spoon Rugby World Yearbook is firmly established as the only illustrated yearbook produced for the rugby enthusiast. With a foreword by HRH Princess Royal, many of the country’s leading rugby writers reflect on the happenings of the past season and look ahead to what is in store for 2019 including the World Cup in Japan. All aspects of rugby – club, internationals, women’s, sevens, youth – are all covered in a book which celebrates winners around the world and also tackles some of the issues that rugby faces as it continues to attract larger audiences both at the grounds and on television. Edited by legendary BBC Rugby Correspondent Ian Robertson, the book ties in with the Autumn Internationals which see England play South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia at Twickenham in November.
