Zavos shares his love of the sport with wit and passion, and passes on some illuminating pointers. Those who have ever wondered what the difference is between a ruck and a maul, a fly half and a fullback will find the answers here. Those who already know – and agree with Spiro’s contention that the good watcher of rugby is the one who is passionate about the game’ – should prepare to be indulged.
