Regarding trakl's reference to the champagne tourists, the excellent book "Champagne Rugby" written by Henri Garcia, originally published in French in 1961 and recently translated by Roger Grime on "The Golden Age of French Rugby League" is now available from London League Publications.

www.geofflee.net for news of my novels, One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn and Two Seasons. All are written against a strong Rugby League background, set in South Lancashire and inspired by the old saying about work: "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller".
