This week’s ‘Rugby Reloaded plus’ chats with Mike Rylance about his new book ‘The Struggle and The Daring’, just published by Scratching Shed. We talk about the history of French rugby league, its fabulous origins, ban by Vichy, the post-war struggles, immortal sides of the 1950s, and its fall from grace. For more on the history of rugby and the other football codes, follow me on Twitter @collinstony and at
