Publishers Description: John Ellicott presents a celebration of the career of Billy Slater, one of Australias favourite Rugby League players. Hailing from Innesfail in rugged far north Queensland, Billy Slaters rugby league days began in the tough local Foley Shield competition, where his father and uncles had played before him. The struggle Billy endured to pursue the game, from his modest roots and remote locale, is symptomatic of the strength of character and physicality that saw him go on to play for the Melbourne Storm and eventually be voted the best footballer in the world. John Ellicott presents a finely crafted portrait of the star fullback: from his Spanish background and his familys beginnings up north, to the great rivalries of the Queensland towns who battled it out for the Foley Shield, through the eyes of former coaches and players who knew him. Genre: Biography
