Publishers Description: George Gregan has made more appearances for the Australian rugby union team than any other player in the sport's history. He captained the team to numerous victories and is respected throughout the rugby world not only as a great halfback, but for his tenacity, tactical skill, leadership ability and sportsmanship. It's also fair to say he's almost as well-known for his "talk-back" to referees and the strength and force of his character. In modern sport, where off-field blandness is too often the rule, George is an enigma - unusual, opinionated, polarising - yet one of the outstanding contributors to the rugby world for more than a decade. He made his first appearance for the Wallabies in 1994 and ended his astonishing international career after the 2007 World Cup. His years at rugby's highest level have seen extraordinary changes in the game as it moved from amateur to professional status and emerged as a truly global sport. George played in three World Cups, five Super 12 grand finals, and made an indelible mark on the game. As an Australian rugby player, he is unique. Now, in George's autobiography, he writes with honesty and insight about both his life and the game he loves. Full of highs and lows, great characters and - always - George's forthright opinion, this is a book not just for rugby fans but for anyone who enjoys an inspiring tale.
