Rugby Jokes with a Kiwi Twist

Take a fresh look at New Zealand rugby with humorist Justin Brown. A whole dialect has sprung up around rugby, which Brown wryly records and decodes. His entertaining remarks about New Zealanders and sport in New Zealand give a real insight into the New Zealand psyche.

Chapters in Rugby Speak by Justin Brown include:

  • Rugby Grammar where we learn that “The referee is always abbreviated to ‘Ref’.”
  • What to Say During the Game such as: “‘Oh, that’s gotta hurt.’ The only thing better than watching players smashing into each other like a couple of dueling wildebeest is watching the replay on the big screen. ‘Oh, that’s gotta hurt’ is normally followed by ‘Oh, nasty!’”
  • The chapter, What to say When You’re Sitting Next to the Old Man Who’s Been to Every Game Since 1922, contains time-honored witticisms such as: “They didn’t play like that in my day.”
  • Things Women Shouldn’t Say: “Which color are we again?” and “I like the other color better, it’s prettier.”
  • What to Say After the Game: learn to console the losers with such gems as “Full credit to the opposition” and “We gave it our best.”

Rugby Speak by Justin Brown will make any New Zealander or sports lover smile. Rugby Speak is a great kiwi gift, and is an essential crash course in New Zealand rugby for yourself.
