Hard road by Shane Webcke( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Webcke gives us the inside running on the dramatic 2006 finals series, including the controversial coaching strategy employed by the Brisbane Broncos in the lead-up to their 2006 NRL Premiership triumph. From the highs of that euphoric victory to the lows of getting lost in the post-retirement maze, Webcke's unflinchingly honest and down-to-earth views are both revealing and insightful. Webcke then tackles the game of rugby league in Australia and shows no mercy. His sometimes brutal honesty on everything from Wayne Bennett quitting the Broncos and players drunken behaviour, to the inclusion of a disgraced Joey Johns in the Team of the Century and rugby league's rivalry with rugby union, will send shockwaves through rugby league's administrators, the media, the players and the game's fan base. Webcke's strong, commonsense suggestions for the future of the game in Australia throw down a gauntlet to the game's administrators, and will make the league sit up and pay attention
Warhorse : life, football and other battles by Shane Webcke( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shane Webcke is rugby league's premier front-row forward of the modern era - and one of the greatest, and toughest, players of the post-war years. Veteran of 20 Test matches for Australia, 21 State of Origin games and 227 first-grade games for his club (to the end of 2005) he has been a pillar of the Brisbane Broncos side for more than a decade. But Webcke is a whole lot more than just a footballer. Family man, philosopher, farmer, articulate spokesman for his club and the game, avid reader, leader, budding media star and shrewd businessman, he could fairly be labelled football's "Renaissance Man". His memoirs are powerful and thought-provoking, as he talks openly about his tough early life and the tragic death of his father in a work accident - a searing event that shaped his life as a man and a football player. His views on the game are equally hard-hitting, and his opinions are as forthright as they are insightful
