Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 20 November 2008

The International Rugby Board (IRB) in association with Emirates Airline has launched the World Rugby Yearbook 2009. 

The Yearbook, published by Vision Sports Publishing, is a comprehensive Rugby annual, combining a winning blend of unique features from star writers, tournament reviews and the complete international records for the 20 teams that competed at Rugby World Cup 2007 in France.

The comprehensive statistics compiled by John Griffiths and Hugh Copping are even more detailed than before, providing the ultimate guide to the international game for the media and Rugby enthusiasts alike, said Editor Paul Morgan. The reviews of all the major international and domestic tournaments are better than before, including detailed analysis of the Six Nations, Tri Nations, Heineken Cup and Super 14, while there is also extensive coverage of the IRBs family of tournaments from the popular IRB Sevens World Series to the IRB Junior World Championship which captured the imagination in Wales this year.

With the British and Irish Lions set to tour South Africa in 2009, there is also a detailed Lions section which features a tour preview and all the records and statistics of every tour to date. The IRB World Rugby Yearbook is the must have for all serious Rugby fans, Morgan added.

The 2009 Yearbook also contains profiles of the five nominees for the IRB Player of the Year 2008 as well as the pictures shortlisted for the IRB/Emirates Airline Rugby Photograph of the Year 2008.
