Reviews

"I enjoyed this book enormously. The match is one of my enduring rugby memories, and reading The Grudge it all came flooding back" -- John Inverdale "The finest book written on the tournament ... English has produced an absolutely outstanding work, weaving in the strands of history, politics, sociology, dislike and tactical nous, which makes the game probably the most remarkable ever played in the grand old tournament. The insights provided into the minds and roles of Jim Telfer and Brian Moore are worth the price alone" -- Stephen Jones * The Times * "Superb ... a fantastic drama. The Grand Slam match was part of a political world ... This is what gave the occasion its power, its glory and its ultimate significance" * The Herald * "Gripping ... Tom English has interviewed all the main protagonists to produce a richly textured picture of the build-up, the day itself and the aftermath" * Independent * "5 stars. An epic tale of clashing personalities. The Grudge puts you right on the touchline as the English and Scottish teams go to war." -- Simon Briggs * Daily Telegraph *
