    The catergory that this book fits into on the bingo board is autobiography or biographyI decided to read this book because it is a former rugby captain and i like the player.What i liked about the book and why, was he tallked about coming to NZ and also while he was actually playing a game which i enjoyed reading about because he explained it well.There wasnt much i didnt like about the book because it is all very interesting to me.I would reccomend this book to any avid rugby players or anybody [...]

    The version I have contains a brief chapter at the end on the World Cup win, hurredly put together to benefit from the pubicity that generated That, and the rest, is OK As with many sports biogs it does have a lot of we were losing at half time but knew we could turn it around etc There are some interesting anecdotes, but few about leadership or captaincy, which was disappointing Maybe I would have enjoyed it in the aftermath of that WC win, but a decade on it was all a little flat.

    Typically play by play affair from a no nonsense character s literary debut.Until the last third When the heart and passion of elite sports knife edge is taken out of chronology And back loaded with adrenaline pumping world cup wins and lions tours Acheiving a memorable climatic punch

    Far too much detail about almost every game he played in I would have liked general detail and insights into the wider realms of the world of rugby.
