Alan Tait made sporting history in 1997 when, after spending eight years in the north of England with Widnes and Leeds, he became the first former professional rugby league player to return to Scottish international rugby union. Once back in union with Rob Andrew's Newcastle falcons, Tait used his international recall as a springboard to tour with the British Lions, a set-up he found riddled with xenophobia and selectorial bias. Tait is one of the most colourful sportsmen of his generation and in Rugby Rebel he tells his remarkable story in typically forthright fashion.

Rugby Rebel investigates a sensational accusation made against brilliant All Black winger Duncan McGregor that he sold team secrets which cost the Original All Blacks their unbeaten record on the famous 1905 tour of Britain, France and the United States. What made it worse was that McGregor's Accusers were some of his fellow All Blacks. But has his name been unfairly besmirched? This book tells McGregor's extraordinary and previously untold story. In doing so, it delves deeply into an explosive and controversial period in New Zealand rugby history, the early 1900s, when 'shamateurism' was rife and the sport was split apart by the emergence of rugby league. Rugby Rebel shatters myths, offers new insights and provides enough information for the reader to decide whether McGregor was hero, or as his deractors claimed, villain.

Conventional historical and political analyses of South Africa have frequently neglected the vital role of sport in general, and rugby in particular. This book fills the gap through a critical interpretation of rugby's role in the development of white society, its role in shaping significant social divisions, and its centrality to the apartheid era "power elite".
