A good read and full of truthful (good solid Kiwi) comments on the reason why it is known as Sh*t Moments in New Zealand Sport


This bitingly funny collection looks at the worst 50 moments in our sporting history. These mishaps and humiliations range from epic chokes on the world stage to refereeing injustices, to shameless off-field shenanigans. Sport is part of the fabric of our nation; it's the core of our fragile national identity. But it can break your heart and take a dump on it in one swift movement. You'll find some catharsis in this light-hearted shortlist of shit, this comprehensive catalogue of catastrophes, this dossier of diabolical debacles and downright disasters.

Author Biography

Rick Furphy and Geoff Rissole are New Zealand's leading experts on shit things. The duo released their bestselling debut Sh*t Towns of New Zealand in 2018, followed by Sh*t Towns of New Zealand Number Two and Sh*t Towns of Australia, before setting their sights on sport. Their work has attracted controversy, including one district mayor suggesting they be shot, but in the spirit of other true Kiwi pioneers like Edmund Hillary, Ernest Rutherford and Hairy Maclary, Rick Furphy and Geoff Rissole refuse to let naysayers deter them from their vital work.
