Recently retired All Blacks captain Tana Umaga is one of the most respected players in world rugby. As the first player of Samoan heritage to captain the All Blacks in test rugby, his story is unique. One of the proudest players ever to wear the famous black jersey, Umaga became an inspirational captain - a man adored by both his team-mates and public alike. In his biography, Umaga will talk of his great love of the All Blacks; of the many highs and lows he has experienced in his 10-year career at the top, and will not shirk the controversial moments in his career - including THAT tackle on Lions centre and captain Brian O'Driscoll. In 2003, he became the first New Zealander to receive the Pierre de Coubertin Trophy for Fair Play for attending to the injured Colin Charvis of Wales during a Test at Hamilton. In 2005 he brought up 100 Super 12 caps with the Hurricanes. He has been the Hurricanes and Wellington Lions skipper and an inspirational leader. He is the fourth most capped All Black (70 tests) in history, sitting behind Christian Cullen, Jeff Wilson, Jonah Lomu and Doug Howlett in the All Blacks' test try-scoring stakes.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-07-29 - Publisher: Penguin Random House New Zealand Limited
Inside the changing sheds, the gyms, the hotels and on the field with the All Blacks at each Rugby World Cup - a tournament that grips the nation. Inside the Cup is the definitive story of the triumphs, oddities, heartbreaks, dramas and disasters of every All Black campaign at the Rugby World Cup. New Zealand rugby's master storyteller, Phil Gifford, takes you behind the scenes to relive the action as it happened and as told by those directly involved. You'll find out why Buck Shelford was dropped, which All Blacks were actually sick before the 1995 final, why Taine Randell believes he shouldn't have been captain in 1999, what exactly led to Graham Henry being reappointed as coach despite the miserable result in 2007, and why Steven Donald is called Beaver. Gifford knows all of the players and personalities - he was there. He details a fascinating and often tumultuous journey, from a boozy dinner in Cardiff where the idea for a global tournament first got off the ground, to the breathtaking finale of the victorious 2011 Cup. Inside the Cup is the perfect book for every true rugby fan.

Sport in the Pacific

Sport in the Pacific is a comparative consideration of the modern movement of Pacific peoples and their physical pursuits across national and cultural boundaries. It covers Australia, Japan and the United States. Its contributors ensure a deeper understanding of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific particularly their social identities and cultural responses in the wake of the arrival of modern sport. Sport in the Pacific comprises eight original contributions which analyze Polynesian and Abogirnal athletes and athletics in colonial and post-colonial contexts. Their analyses stress the importance of adaptation and appropriation, reinvention and revivialism, as well as diaspora and globalization. The volume will have three overlapping themes: change and continuity, cultural and transcultural power, and the complexity of race, gender, and national identity. Sport in the Pacific, in short, compares the significance of modern sport in a largely ignored setting: the indigenous societies of the Pacific.This book was previously published as a special issue of International Journal of the History of Sport.
