George Gregan: Halfback, Half Forward, George Gregan
1 George Gregan George Gregan: Halfback, Half Forward
Pan Macmillan 244131 Australia 2008 First Edition 1405038616 / 9781405038614 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good George Gregan has made more appearances for the Australian Rugby Union team than any other player in the sport's history. 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. 397 pages.

Martin Johnson The Autobiography, Martin Johnson
4 Martin Johnson Martin Johnson The Autobiography
Headline 237628 Great Britain 2004 0755311876 / 9780755311873 Softcover Very Good Condition Martin Johnson is the towering second row forward who has come to set the standards of what a professional rugby player should do. His drive and physical presence mean that he is a natural leader on the pitch - and off it, too. In this, his long-awaited autobiography, he looks at the changing world of rugby. He explains why he led the England team to the brink of a strike in the autumn of 2000, and provides the definitive account of England's 2003 World Cup triumph, as well as Lions tours and all the goings-on that make rugby such a special sport. Hugely popular and respected, Martin Johnson has written vivid autobiography and a remarkable portrait of modern rugby. 470 pages. Tanning to pages.

John Eales: The Biography, Peter Fitzsimons
5 Peter Fitzsimons John Eales: The Biography
ABC Books 243588 Australia 2001 First Edition 0733310125 / 9780733310126 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good John Eales is a giant of a man who stands almost 6 foot 8 inches tall. In rugby union he plays with the big men in tight forwards - in the lineouts, scrums, rucks and malls. This is a brutal world of strength, power and toughness. So why is Eales Australia's most loved player? Perhaps it's because although he talks the tough stuff on he can also be seen screaming across the field in cover defence, or charging down a kick (even once a kick at the goal), or saving a goal by leaping above the crossbar and tapping the ball back into the field of play, or leaping higher than any in the lineout, or diving like a sprawling gully fielder to snaffle a kick through on the full, or kicking goals himself from the sideline. John Eales' all round athleticism is unsurpassed. But there's more than this. Eales is an inspirational leader through his actions and his relentless determination. He is often one of the first chosen in the all-time allstar world teams of many. This book also traces the history of the Wallabies throughout the nineties and beyond - it's full of revelation and straight-talking. 359 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs.

Crossing The Line, Wendell Sailor
8 Wendell Sailor Crossing The Line
Simon & Schuster 244709 Australia 2013 1922052361 / 9781922052360 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Superstar Brisbane Broncos and Kangaroos winger Wendell Sailor shocked everyone when he switched codes to play union in 2001. The King of the Wing, whose thunderous runs intimidated anyone in his path, surprised even himself when he was selected for the Wallabies, becoming the first Australian player raised in league to represent his country in both codes. But in 2006, it all fell apart. During a routine drug test for the Waratahs, he tested positive for cocaine and was banned from the game for two years. And those years away would prove to the toughest challenge of his life. The self-confessed party boy who constantly sought the public spotlight was now forced to do some soul-searching, and most of it wasn't pretty. But Sailor fought back hard and worked through the shame, throwing himself into charity work and mentoring young people in alcohol and drug awareness programs. With the help of his family and old coach and mentor, Wayne Bennett, he began his path to redemption. When the ban was up, Sailor made a triumphant return to the code that had first discovered him at age 18, and the St George Illawarra Dragons had a new winger - and a player determined to prove what he was capable of until his final game in 2010. But Crossing the Line isn't just Sailor's story as the comeback king. Written with Jimmy Thomson, Wendell reveals a dark secret that has haunted him since childhood. He tells us what it's like to be a black man in a white man's world and the toll racism takes on elite sport. He shows us how good friends and mentors are so important to our national heroes. And he also demonstrates how crucial the bonds of family - and the love and trust of good people - are for anyone, hero or not. 340 pages. Tanning to pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Sport::Rugby Union; Sports & Pastimes; Sport::Rugby League. ISBN/EAN: 9781922052360. Inventory No: 244709. Hardcover
