Munster rugby is a force to be reckoned with.
Hugh Farrelly, a respected sportswriter, examines the rise and rise of Munster and their place in the pantheon of rugby greats. Unique full-colour photographs capture the determination, stamina, strength and skill of 'the Red Wave'.
Munster: Rugby Giants details the history of Munster rugby, famous wins, most notably over the All Blacks in 1978, and the rise of the current Munster team under their coaches, Declan Kidney and Niall O'Donovan. His candid, informative, fast-paced and humorous writing is accompanied by first class sports photographs of the players, fans, winning tries and all the glory.
Hugh Farrelly provides 'insider' descriptions of the players and the game: the text is full of his own personal anecdotes and memories. Player profiles are scattered throughout the book. Farrelly has also travelled with the fans to every game, and the final chapter looks at this devoted group. A comprehensive and stylish portrayal of the modern phenomenon that is the
Munster Rugby team.
