Publishers Description: Shane Webcke is rugby leagues premier front-row forward of the modern era – and one of the greatest, and toughest, players of the post-war years. Veteran of 20 Test matches for Australia, 21 State of Origin games and 227 first-grade games for his club (to the end of 2005) he has been a pillar of the Brisbane Broncos side for more than a decade. But Webcke is a whole lot more than just a footballer. Family man, philosopher, farmer, articulate spokesman for his club and the game, avid reader, leader, budding media star and shrewd businessman, he could fairly be labelled footballs "Renaissance Man".His memoirs are powerful and thought-provoking, as he talks openly about his tough early life and the tragic death of his father in a work accident – a searing event that shaped his life as a man and a football player. His views on the game are equally hard-hitting, and his opinions are as forthright as they are insightful. Shane Webcke stands for all thats good about rugby league, and his book will appeal to every genuine fan of the game – whatever their team.
