Tuesday 26 January is the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the Rugby Football Union at the Pall Mall Restaurant in the centre of London. In this week’s 150th episode of ‘Rugby Reloaded’ we explore why and how the RFU was formed, and discover the contemporary parallels which forced rugby clubs to form their first governing body.
