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 and arguably the most talented player of all time. In this bestselling autobiography, he 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 prepared to become the first captain to successfully defend the World Cup, McCaw 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.

The author

Since Richie McCaw's debut in 2001 the All Blacks have won seven Tri Nations titles, completed three successful Grand Slam tours and won the Bledisloe Cup eight times as well as the 2011 Rugby World Cup. In 2010 McCaw played his 100th Super Rugby game, and has captained his country more than a record 60 times. He has been named the International Rugby Board (IRB) International Player of the Year a record three times.
