Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

There's an astounding number of brothers playing in top level rugby in New Zealand. How is this so? What's it like for the siblings: do they compete with each other or do they support each other? Is there a particular climate in some families that encourages this success?

'Splendid, comprehensive, insightful and entertaining' Brian Turner, Newsroom

' An engaging and delightful read' John Campbell, TVNZ
