Abstract:

John Eales is Australia's finest rugby player. This biography traces his life from the classic Australian childhood in the surburbs of Brisbane to the glory of captaining the World Cup-winning Wallabies, and shows that this road to sporting greatness has had many twists and turns. With a new chapter taking Eales's story up to his retirement in a blaze of glory after winning against the British and Irish Lions and the All Blacks in 2001, John Eales: the Biography is written with all the passion and colour of a true insider. Sydney Morning Herald sports journalist and former Wallaby Peter FitzSimons interviewed Eales's family, friends, colleagues and teammates past and present, as well as Eales's himself. This book reveals a man whose outstanding qualities extend much further than his exceptional skill on the football field.
