Books on French Rugby League

Recommended Posts

The Forbidden Game by Mike Rylance - I think out of print but available on Kindle.

Frank Perrin has a number of things which you can find on amazon.fr (I assume self published).

Champagne Rugby by Henri Garcia & Roger Grime - published in French in 1961 and translated to English and published recently by LLP - as a printed book but also available on Kindle - lots of good stuff on French RL history.

Champagne Rugby starts with a history of the game's beginnings in France and the Vichy era, but mostly covers the tours down under where the French stunned the Australians with their skills. It is a short book, but a great read.

"We are easily breakable, by illness or falling, or a million other ways of leaving this earthly life. We are just so much mashed potato."  Don Estelle
