Lloyd Jones has written uite an unconventional book It is a fictionalized account of the 1905 rugby tour by the New Zealand team to the British Isles and France This team became known as The Originals and they achieved legendary status both where they toured and at homeThose of you not familiar or interested in rugby or sport in general may as well move on now No hard feelingsJones describes the fiction non fiction status of the book as follows The myth of the 1905 Originals precedes this novel as do various match reports on the games played Actual events outside of the matches however have been harder to come by and where obtainable not that interesting or even illuminating This is where the imagination slips easily into the gaps While this book is a work of the imagination it is nonetheless bedded in research The writing style is unconventional the words are often sparse on the page written almost as poetry short lines of text grouped in clusters The words are from many people some as reportage some as the men themselves some as the journalists and supporters There are pages which are lists of things or events or thoughts The whole book is probably the closest thing to poetry I have read in totality for many years poetry and I don t mixI won t dwell much on the rugby due to my negligible audience but there are a few stats to pick out these exclude the two games v British Colombia in New YorkPlayed 35 games won 34 drew 0 lost 1Points for 868 points against 47 This tour gave the NZ rugby team the name they are commonly recognised as The All BlacksThis tour made Dave Gallagher Bob Deans Billy Stead household namesAnd some statementsThis tour was an excellent example of why neutral referees must be mandatory in sports there were some outrageously poor refereeing decisions mostly resorting to calling back many tries as forward passes when the referee could not keep up with play The test against Scotland provided examples of the worst sportsmanship experienced and the muttering of it wouldn t have happened at home repeatedlyThe one game they lost v Wales was controversial The NZ manager rejected all proposed referees and the rules state another union be asked to appoint a referee Wales asked Scotland who were already off side with the tourists pun intended who appointed a referee who penalised the NZ team at every scrum Eventually the NZ captain instructed his men to stop contesting the scrum So obviously stories vary around the Bob Deans try The Kiwis claiming he placed the ball over the line and was dragged 3 yards back before the referee made it to the end of the field The Welsh suggest he was short of the line There were also a number of call backs for forward passes called from well behind play This is a Kiwi author telling a Kiwi story obviously The reality is most people consider the All Blacks played poorly that day They lost 3 0There is one really confusing detail around the scrum the New Zealanders using a 2 3 2 formation which was not the norm for the home nations at the time They also developed a wing forward position which was deemed controversial These were only lightly explained in the book I haven t found an explanation of how the scum rules worked at the time and who determined the formationThe other point to note was the scoring of the time Very confusing in the general text but a try is worth 3 points a conversion 2 points a field goal drop kick 4 points and a penalty kick 3 pointsA hard book to rate with limited appeal to many4 stars

Summary The Book of Fame

The Book of Fame Read & download ✓ 2 O l'inizio Da uel momento in poi mietono un successo dopo l'altro Il pubblico li adora Le signore li coccolano I mariti li invidiano Per loro vengono organizzate cene balli e serate di gala Sono ospitati e accolti con ogni onore in molte città della vecchia Europa dall'Inghilterra all'Irlanda alla Scozia al Galles alla Francia Curiosi e smarriti attraversano il Nuovo MondoOgnuno di loro possiede una buona dose di coraggio ingenuità elegante naturalezza e generosità senza pari Un irrefrenabile piacere di giocare insieme e uno spirito di suadra ferreo e indiscutibile A dicembre a soli uattro mesi dalla partenza sono già i «meravigliosi All Blacks» che nella classic. I borrowed this recently and greatly enjoyed it It has the same very sparse prose style as his recent books used to great effect I had avoided reading this as I thought it was a conventional treatment of the 1905 rugby tour of Great Britain but while it clear Lloyd Jones knows his rugby this is about the way the players from colonial New Zealand reacted to what they still called the motherland None were professional athletes and they came from diverse backgrounds united by their combined joy of playing the game Lloyd Jones shows us that even in 1905 a New Zealand character had emerged and that these tourists were among the first young kiwis out on their overseas experience now almost a compulsory rite of passage Much of this is lists which show how the players were received what they discovered and what they missed from New Zealand Lists can be an effective narrative Rabelais is perhaps among the first to use this Here Lloyd Jones builds word pictures of precision and life in his lists Read this even if you are not interested in sport or rugby
