When William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran with it on the Close at Rugby School in 1823,he could never have imagined that his simple action would give birth to one of the world’s greatest games.  His name, as well as those of the school and the town of Rugby, will be forever linked with an increasingly popular and truly global sport. 

The author, David Ray, as both Historian and former master in charge of Rugby at Rugby School for many years, is perfectly placed to plot the development of the game of “Rugger” from the moment young Webb Ellis showed that “fine disregard for the rules” in the early years of the nineteenth century to the excitement and intensity of the modern World Cup.  Easy to read and packed full of prints, plates, paintings and photographs, the book is both factual and humorous and will appeal to all ages as it captures the origins, traditions and, indeed, the very essence of the iconic game of Rugby Football.
