In this hugely entertaining volume, author and sports journalist Adam McNicol delves into the detail of our most compelling sporting rivalries to unearth where they came from and how they keep their tenacious hold over us.

From cricket's Ashes series to the passionate loyalties that divide motorsport fans between Ford vs Holden, he explores the question: what is it that makes a great rivalry?

The big international rivalries that help to define us as a nation are covered: America’s Cup, Australia vs New Zealand in netball and rugby union, Shane Warne casting a spell over Daryll Cullinan. And the grand tales behind the national rivalries that hold us in thrall – Collingwood vs Carlton and New South Wales vs Queensland in rugby league – are there as well.
