[caption id="attachment_595" align="alignright" width="116" caption="A History of Sunderland RFC"][/caption] MX author Keith Gregson is currently putting the final touches to his history of Sunderland RFC 'in its historical context'. Keith says that he is really pleased with the outcome. "At first I thought that it would only be the Victorian and Edwardian periods that would be appealing with rugby union's battle with soccer,  rugby league and  the question of professionalism, However I have found equal interest in the lmost recent  three or four decadeswith the reality of rugby union leagues, union professionalism and the growth of mini and junior rugby. Also what has happened to those in the older age brackets who now want to keep on playing competetive rugby till pensionable age". Keith's book is timed nicely to be published during October's World Cup and is already available on Amazon UK .
