One for the coffee table
When it comes to watching the Rugby World Cup on the box, it normally boils down to piling down the pub or putting your feet up in the living room.
If it's the latter option you prefer, then you'll be needing some appropriate coffee table reading matter. And Union - The Heart of Rugby is just the ticket.
Packed with iconic images capturing key moments in the history of the game, it had even my wife - not normally the greatest of rugby aficionados - thumbing through (although that may have had something to do with the physiques on show).
Union contains the thoughts of Martin Johnson, John Kirwan, Joel Stransky, Nick Farr-Jones and Philippe Sella, but it is the photography that steals the show.
Well timed for the Rugby World Cup, Union would also be worthy of consideration as a Christmas present for that rugby-loving relative.
