Rugby On This Day is the first book by Adrian Hill, who works freelance as a sports journalist/researcher. Born just down the road from Twickenham, Adrian joined the BBC straight from school and became a studio floor manager and researcher on flagship sports shows, moving in 1994 to become senior researcher on Sky Sport's rugby union coverage.
