You'll love this because...

With these newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the wonderful history of the England Rugby Union team. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1906 to the present day

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot! Relive the history of the England national Rugby Union team through newspaper clippings in this personalised English Rugby book. With coverage beginning in 1906, with England winning the Calcutta Cup, this timeless piece of rugby memorabilia takes you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from Twickenham and beyond, right up until 2016.

England remains the most successful of the Six Nations rugby union teams. Having won 17 Five Nations titles outright, more than any other team, they proceeded to dominate after the addition of Italy to the tournament in 2000, winning the Six Nations six times, again more than any other team. Four of those victories were also Triple Crowns, with two being Grand Slams. England would have to wait a while for success in the Rugby World Cup, however. After losing to Australia in the 1991 final on home soil, England claimed revenge in 2003, as Johnny Wilkinson, their hero throughout the tournament, kicked a drop goal in the final minute of extra time to bring the William Webb Ellis Cup back to England for the first time. England would reach the final again four years later, this time losing in controversial circumstances to South Africa.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

auntiebellie Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

My brother simply loved this book - not only for the contents but for the quality. He is a lifelong rugby fan and this was a present for his 60th birthday.A real success all round - many thanks.

kellykelly Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 August

The children clubbed together to get this for Fathers day. The articles are mainly from the 70's onwards and from tabloid papers with only the first few being older. This was disappointing as it really only reminded Dad of when he was a kid and the previous yrs not included. Because of this it was overpriced. The binding and cover solid but again the gift tag 'presented to..' was not on the front page with some blank pages first so that he totally missed that and they had to find it to show him. Overall they were v disappointed in the product for the amount of money they had spent.
