Yes, South Stand Loiner, I will have those books you want. Both are novels set against a strong though quite different rugby league background..
"Rugby Football. A United Game" is based on the idea what might have happened if the Northern clubs had been in the majority around the time of the great split in 1895.
"The Glory and The Dream" is a novel set in the early post war period of rationing and shortages about a young lad growing up in South Lancashire wjth a dream to follow his Dad's success playing rugby league. Interestingly Roy Chesters fictional town of Garton is not very far from my fictional town of Ashurst.
