Rugby is the win­ner on the day with this on-the-ball sin­ga­long book and CD combo cel­e­brat­ing the on-field, and some­times off-side glory days of rug­by­play­ing dads ev­ery­where.

Laga’aia ably tack­les the singing, while Peter Mil­let’s word play en­sures you’ll never sing the orig­i­nal ver­sion of This Old Man again. Il­lus­tra­tor Jenny Cooper com­pletes the back­line, scor­ing through­out with smart and hu­mor­ous pic­tures. Fi­nal score? Fam­ily fun for the whole team. —
