By Darren Lockyer with Dan Koch.
Darren Lockyer is one of Rugby League’s most famous and well regarded sons.
He is the consummate professional, a true gentleman of the game, captaining teams at every level to the highest tiers of success, and as such, is one of the most respected men in the game today.
He has won every accolade the game has to offer, including the Golden Boot for International Player of the Year – playing in two different positions. His retirement is the end of an era.
From his days growing up and working at the family-owned truck stop on the outskirts of the tiny Queensland town of Wandoan, to his arrival at the Broncos as a teenage sensation and subsequent ascension toward rugby league immortality, the book will shed new light on some of the biggest names and stories of the past two decades.
Contributions from Lockyer’s family and friends, as well as legendary figures like Wayne Bennett, Wendell Sailor, Andrew Johns, Mal Meninga, Johnathan Thurston, Gorden Tallis, George Gregan, Ricky Stuart and Craig Bellamy gives this book a unique edge, with each providing readers a rare insight into their view on Lockyer the player, the leader and the man.
