About the Author
Sean Long is one of the finest rugby league half-backs to ever pick up the oval ball. Long started his pro career at his hometown club Wigan Warriors and, after a short stop-over at Widnes, he was signed by St. Helens in 1997 to fill the boots of another Saints legend, Bobby Goulding. Long has won every major honor in the game at club level and is the only player in Challenge Cup history to win the Lance Todd Trophy three times as man of the match in the 2001, 2004, and 2006 finals. He also won 15 caps for Great Britain and five for England before retiring from international rugby on 16 April 2007. Still one of the most colorful characters ever to play the game, he continues to wear the No. 7 shirt at St. Helens.

As a LRLFC (Rhinos) Fan I have enjoyed booing Sean Long whilst hes either tore us apart or we have managed to control him. I have enjoyed my Friday nights watching him do the magic on the pitch, its a love hate relationship that most rival fans have with him.
The book is funny,gripping and quite shocking, I would love to read the bits the lawers took out! Overall and most important, the book is very very honest, even if it does make the lad embarrassed.
The story does jump around a little, however its very well written and you can follow it with ease. He tells us about his difficult childhood, his time at school, discovering RL and then his career especially as with most RL players, his drinking career.
I would recommend this to any Rugby fan, League or Union. It was a great laugh and had me hooked, I read it in 1 day, it was such a good book.
There are some moments in which he describes some of his past misdemeanour's which are shocking, but the remorseful tone he speaks in sounds genuine. Recommended.
That said, an enjoyable read.
All in all a great read with some funny moments.
Right up there with the Ladybird classics.
