Product Description

Product Description

Benji Marshall is a once?in?a?generation footballer. To some, he is a once?in?a?lifetime footballer. There has never been anyone like him. Phil Gould has written that Marshall is a "mystery wrapped inside a riddle". Now, all the mysteries and riddles of Marshall, the brilliant Wests Tigers and Kiwis five?eighth, are solved. Where did that step come from? How on earth did he conjure up the flick pass that won the 2005 grand final? What on earth is he doing sometimes? Benji: My Story details how a skinny kid from a small town in New Zealand became arguably rugby league’s most exciting talent. From his single parent upbringing, and the lows of his sporting career and the off?field scrutiny which shadows him constantly; to the triumphs, the Tigers’ stunning premiership win and New Zealand’s World Cup and Four Nations victories. It introduces the uncles and wider family who helped raise him, as well as the man he would call his father, whose life — and death — changed him forever. This is Benji Marshall as you have never seen him before.

About the Author

As a report for Rugby League Week and then the Sydney Morning Herald, Glenn Jackson has covered 13 NRL grand finals. One of his highlights was the 2005 decider, which saw Benji Marshall and his Wests Tigers side come of age against North Queensland. After seven years with RLW, covering the 2000 rugby league World Cup in England, he joined the Herald in 2006. Through his time there he has covered Marshall's World Cup win in 2008 and the Four Nations triumph of 2010, as well as the bumps in his career in between.
