The ultimate rugby quiz: Who wrote the book 'Beware of the Dog'?

BRAINTEASER: Take on @rugby365com‘s oracle Paul Dobson in this mental challenge!


After yesterday’s tough examination, we bring a bit more variety in this version in the hope that the readers score higher.

Given that less than three percent got full marks (100 percent) and less than 10 percent got above 60, we hope for a better performance this time.

You will see your score at the end of the quiz and can challenge your friends and rivals.

We will provide the answers to this quiz in the next one, so you can see what the correct answers were.

Be honest and do it on your own and get your own score, not google’s answers! Nobody needs to know your score except you yourself, but it may stimulate an interest in rugby’s history.

Important notes!

PS: It is a timed quiz, so cheating and making use of Google to search for answers will see you being timed out!

PPS: It is case sensitive – Sydney University, not sydney university.

Good luck and enjoy!
