England Behind The Rose - Playing Rugby For England

Behind the Rose: Playing Rugby for England by Stephen Jones and Nick Cain, foreword by Jason Leonard

This is a complete history of the England rugby union team – told by men who have donned the white shirt with its iconic red rose.
 
Based on a combination of painstaking research into the early years of the England team to interviews with a vast array of Test match players from the Second World War to the present day, world-renowned rugby writers Stephen Jones and Nick Cain delve to the very heart of what it means to play for England, painting a unique and utterly compelling picture of the game in the only words that can truly do so: the players’ own.
This is the definitive story of English Test match rugby – a story etched in blood, sweat and tears, a story of great joy and heart-breaking sorrow, of sacrifice, agony, endeavour and triumph. Behind the Rose lifts the lid on what it is to pull on the white shirt – the trials and tribulations behind the scenes, the glory, the drama and the honour on the field, and the heart-warming tales of friendship and humour off it.
 
Absorbing and illuminating, this is a must-have for all supporters who have ever dreamed of walking the hallowed corridors of Twickenham as a Test match player, preparing themselves for battle and then marching out to that field of dreams with the deafening roar of the crowd in their ears and the red rose emblazoned on their chest.
 
STEPHEN JONES is a multi-award-winning Sunday Times rugby correspondent and world-renowned rugby expert. He is the author of several books on the sport, including Endless Winter: Inside Story of the Rugby Revolution which won the prestigious William Hill Sports Book of the Year award.
 
NICK CAIN is a leading authority on the game after 30 years as a roving rugby correspondent. He is chief writer for The Rugby Paper and a columnist for The Sunday Times. He co-authored Lions Diary, recording Jeremy Guscott’s triumphant 1997 tour and edited Rugby World magazine for nine years.
 
Behind the Rose is published in association with the Rugby Football Union. The RFU Rose and the words ‘England Rugby’ are official registered trademarks of the Rugby Football Union.
