Member Pick: One Game at a Time

From SportPursuit Member Jules: “Rugby World’s ‘One Game At A Time’, by sports broadcaster Sam Roberts, is about more than just rugby. It offers a very honest and open account, steered by Roberts but particularly from the stars themselves, of the emotions and decision making involved in just one particular game from their careers; the pressures they faced as well as their interpretation of the action as it unfolds around them with them at the centre.”

The Real Science of Sport

Geek out on stories from across the world of sport, delving into myths, controversies, latest research and pro-level practices. Detailed and fascinating conversations wtih Professor Ross Tucker and editor Mike Finch, from breaking the sub-2 hour marathon to what rugby can teach us about player safety.
