The only one I can think of is Malcolm Pryce's surreal, but actually pretty noir, Aberystwyth Mon Amour, which has a certain amount of rugby backstory. Highly recommended, this starts off as a Chandler pastiche/parody but soon develops into something much more interesting.


And, oh yes, my own Five Pubs Two Bars And A Nightclub does start off with a rugby match.
