Book Description

10 May 2013
In 2011, NRL fans will have the chance to share in a piece of rugby league history. The game's record books will be re-written, some taken to heights unlikely to ever be matched. Darren Lockyer will celebrate his 34th birthday this year. Of those 34 years, 17 have been spent putting his body through hell in perhaps the toughest football competition on the planet. Lockyer has, quite literally, spent half his lifetime in the NRL. By season's end Lockyer is set to hold the all-time appearance record for club, state and country. It is a feat no less a judge than Wayne Bennett declared would never be equalled. The remarkable longevity of Lockyer's excellence has earned him the respect of fellow athletes around the world and the adoration of fans everywhere. But while undoubtedly one of the most recognisable athletes in Australia, Lockyer has largely maintained his privacy, rarely, if ever, allowing fans a look at the man behind the man. In this book Lockyer, for the first time, opens up on the people, places; incidents and events which have shaped the life and career of an Australian sporting icon. From his days growing up and working at the family-owned truck stop on the outskirts of the tiny Queensland town of Wandoan, to his arrival at the Broncos as a teenage sensation and subsequent ascension toward rugby league immortality the book will shed new light on some of the biggest names and stories of the past two decades. Contributions from Lockyer's family and friends, as well as legendary figures like Wayne Bennett, Wendell Sailor, Andrew Johns, Mal Meninga, Johnathan Thurston, Gorden Tallis, George Gregan, Ricky Stuart and Craig Bellamy gives this book a unique edge, with each providing readers a rare insight into their view on Lockyer the player, the leader and the man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 25 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As one of the all time Rugby League greats, this is a must for modern day fans. The comments from mentors/coaches/fellow players show how high a regard Lockyer is held. A fantastic book, probably best autobiography I have read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing Mr Lockyer 2 Sep 2011
By mrhappi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I rare insight into the man behind Darren Lockyer. Even as a long term supporter of the Broncs I've never really warmed to Locky. Probably due to the obvious straight laced persona that is 'always on' for the public. As I finish the book Darren has one more NRL home game remaining and now that I know the bloke better, I'm really going to miss him!

Love the book and how they've weaved in the commentary by others who know him best.
