Product description

Richie McCaw, Rugby World Cup winning captain and the New Zealand All Black's most capped player of all time, is unquestionably the greatest player of his generation. He is arguably the most talented player of all time. In his bestselling autobiography, McCaw talks with brutal honesty about the roots of his family life that defined his character and how it gave him the strength to emerge from the lowest moment in his career to lift the Webb Ellis Cup, and become the most successful captain world rugby has ever seen. As he prepares to become the first captain to successfully defend the World Cup, McCaw has set the standard of what a professional rugby player should be. Hugely popular and respected, his sheer presence means that he is a natural leader both on and off the pitch and his story is not just a brutal account of life on the front line, but an exhilarating portrait of modern rugby.

Review quote

'His story is not just a brutal account of life on the front line, but an exhilarating portrait of modern rugby.' News Letter (Belfast) 'McCaw's book offers an intriguing and unflinching insight into leading the All Blacks in a home World Cup' Guardian 'Thanks to one of the finer rugby brains of all time and some excellent wording from co-writer Greg McGee, a riveting rugby read it most definitely is.' Planet Rugby 'Beautifully written. Sports bios are usually droll affairs. This one is different.' Irish Independent
