From whites to muddies

James Kehoe

A history of Rugby Union in the Royal Australian Navy.

Rugby Union has evolved in the Royal Australian Navy, not just as a major sporting activity but as a way of developing personal skills and attitudes in the players that reflect Navy's values. From Whites to Muddies explores the growth of the sport within the naval forces of Australia, from its earliest appearance in the mid nineteenth century up to 2011.

This book explains how Rugby developed and was supported by the Navy leadership, allowing Navy to use the sport to engage the nation's communities and on the international scene.
