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 era's 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!’
