After a forty-year voluntary exile an expatriate Kiwi returns to New Zealand to travel around while reporting on the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
Return to Rugby Land is a challenging and provocative social commentary encompassing more than just the games or the scenery. Scott explores sport’s place in society, along with the myths, psyche, and anxieties of a small nation. While questioning comfortable shibboleths, including about Maori and women, his personal account offers heartfelt insights and a broad understanding of New Zealand inextricably linked to the omnipresent game of Rugby.
David Scott Lives in Sri Lanka, where he divides his time between a Colombo seaside home & a small family estate in Kurunegala District. On the land he helps pick coconuts & betel, & collects firewood. Besides teaching English, uncle duties & enjoying sunsets & waves at Mount Lavinia beach keep him busy enough.
