In This Sporting Life, the debut novel by David Storey, we are immersed in the world of professional Rugby League football in an industrial northern city. It covers several years in the life of the narrator, Arthur Machin, from the day of his inclusion in the local team to the match when he begins to feel age creeping up on him and his feet failing.
