There are effectively 3 parts to this book, the story of Mike's playing career, then his coaching career and then an account of the debilitating illness that he is now struggling against. All three are worth reading and together they make this a must read for any Rugby League fan.
It would be easy to say buy this book because everyone who watched Mike Gregory play admired him and everyone who knows of Mike's current plight must feel sorry for him, but this book stands on it's own merits. The playing memories are an entertaining read and the bits about his coaching career are fascinating. His account of the behind the scenes goings on at Wigan must have been an embarrassing read for Dave Whelan and Maurice Lindsay, and gives a few pointers to the reasons for that club's relative lack of success in the Super League era.
Buy the book !
I laughed at his memories of cup finals, cried when he was fighting his illness and cheered when he won his battle against Wigan and the despicable way he was treated by them as his illness worsened.
A fitting tribute to one of the greatest players - who will never be forgotten by any Warrington fan who watched him through the 80s and early 90s
What a great player and a devoted family man who received great support from his wife throughout his illness.
You can make your own mind up on the Wigan "bosses" who clearly failed to look after this sporting legend.
Mike Gregory's story will not fail to move you
