- For over a century rugby has been New Zealand's national game, an obsession that has helped define a small country and mould its people - Maori and Pakeha. Having a Ball, with a Foreword by David Kirk, looks at the triumphs and disasters, the amateur code that morphed into the professional era, the game at the local park and internationals in huge arenas, as well as rugby's effect on the national psyche and the agendas of politicians. There is a short, snappy Introduction followed, in six sections, by the perceptive, telling and funny insights of New Zealand's leading cartoonists. From earlier generations, there are cartoons by Trevor Lloyd, Sir Gordon Minhinnick, Sid Scales, Neville Colvin, Eric Heath and Nevile Lodge. Today's award-winning cartoonists include Peter Bromhead, Bob Brockie, Chris Slane, Murray Ball, Murray Webb, Garrick Tremain and Tom Scott. The first-ever 'Key Dates in 140 years of NZ Rugby' section makes fascinating reading - and will be a boon for rugby quizzes!
