By Joseph Romanos
When the sport of rugby went professional in 1995, no-one expected the revolution that would follow.
Joseph Romanos has written this stunning book about a game taken over by money and avarice. Of its betrayal by greedy players, demanding sponsors and incompetent administrators. And of the reduction of rugby to just another form of entertainment - a spectator sport with an uncertain future.
This book argues that the traditions, the values and the camaraderie that once made rugby great have all been betrayed. Now we have a game that is in serious trouble, racially divided and fatally dislocated from the average club player and fan.
This is a riveting, no-holds-barred expose of the game, the players, the officials and the money.
If you want to know what's really happening to our national game then look no further. 'The Judas Game' tells it all.
