Book; "On the Ball", Tales of Rugby in New Zealand by Ben Giles.
From the author's Foreword:
Presenting "ON THE BALL", in semi-story fashion, with a New Zealand setting, much as the players, episodes and aspects of the game would have been talked into the minds of "Young New Zealand" for the past thirty or forty years, the author hopes it will appeal to many of the thousands of Rugby football enthusiasts of this country.
The scene opens round the year 1900 and this 'kick' deals with the Rugby of that period, practically the dawn of the modern game and with the outlook of players and public of that date'.
