Springbok Rugby QuizSpringbok Rugby VasvraZebra is pleased to present Springbok Rugby Quiz: 1001 Questions and Answers (Afrikaans: Springbok Rugby Vasvra: 1001 Vrae en Antwoorde) by Pierre Francois Massyn:

Which Springbok lock played with a glass eye?

Welcome to the ultimate rugby quiz book for real rugby fans! Springbok Rugby Quiz examines the lore of rugby in an unusually entertaining way: it comprises 1001 questions and answers. Rugby lovers can now enjoy some of the most outlandish anecdotes, as well as cold, hard facts and statistics, about this game we all love.

This well-researched book covers the entire spectrum of our rugby history, from the first test match in 1891, up to modern times. The book has two sections: test yourself by reading the question in the first part and then cross-check your answer in the second part. Rugby fans will certainly find more than enough challenges among the 1001 questions included here. And, as a bonus, the author also includes his Dream Team – the best players of all time united in one super team. Fun, informative and factual, this is a must-read for all rugby fans.
