Product Description


Australia's mercurial rugby star David Campese, the world's leading try-scorer, offers an insight into the game and other aspects of his life. He plays all the year round, in Australia during the winter and in Italy during the Southern Hemisphere summer, and during his career has faced all the great contemporary players. Here he discusses the strengths and weaknesses of his opponents, his disagreements with former Australian coach Alan Jones and his seemingly telepathic relationship on the field with his great compatriot, Mark Ella. He addresses the game's major topics, airing his strong views on professionalism, on the way in which players have been manipulated by officials attracting increasing finance into the game, and on rugby around the world.

What more can you say about the man, the legend that is Campo. A genius, a gentleman and a scholar to boot.
The finest sight I've seen in sport is that of David "Campo" Campese goosestepping down the wing leaving England's finest grasping at thin air. Not only was he terrific value on the pitch but his forthright, balanced opinions on the game are always worth listening to, particularly his thoughtful and objective stance on post-colonialism.
I love this man and I love his book!
