Publishers Description: Colin Meads is one of the greatest rugby players in New Zealand. Even before he was voted New Zealand's Rugby Player of the Century, Meads had already attained living legend status in New Zealand. Here, he dips back into his playing career and offers comparisons with the modern game. It becomes a social commentary - how professionalism has changed the face of rugby forever, and how the modern player has taken up the challenge. And, indeed, the burden of performing in the all-consuming black jersey. There is also a great love story in Mead's life, Verna, his wife of 40 years.
