Darren Lockyer Autobiography [used book], Darren Lockyer and Dan Koch
1 Darren Lockyer Autobiography [used book]
Darren Lockyer and Dan Koch Australia Ebury 2011 1864712732 / 9781864712735 Hardcover Good Book Royal 
Darren Lockyer will celebrate his 34th birthday this year. Of those 34 years, 17 have been spent putting his body through hell in perhaps the toughest football competition on the planet. Lockyer has, quite literally, spent half his lifetime in the NRL. By season's end Lockyer is set to hold the all-time appearance record for club, state, and country. The remarkable longevity of Lockyer's excellence has earned him the respect of fellow athletes around the world and the adoration of fans everywhere. But while undoubtedly one of the most recognizable athletes in Australia, Lockyer has largely maintained his privacy, rarely, if ever, allowing fans a look at the man behind the man. In this book Lockyer, for the first time, opens up on the people, places, incidents, and events which have shaped the life and career of an Australian sporting icon. From his days growing up and working at the family-owned truck stop on the outskirts of a tiny Queensland town, to his arrival at the Broncos as a teenage sensation, and subsequent ascension toward rugby league immortality, "Lockyer" 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 give this book a unique edge, each providing a rare insight into their view on Lockyer the player, the leader, and the man.

Sin Bin: The Untold Story of A True Footy Bad Boy [used book], John Elias and Josh Massoud
2 Sin Bin: The Untold Story of A True Footy Bad Boy [used book]
John Elias and Josh Massoud Australia MacMillan 2010 1405040211 / 9781405040211 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
'This is a story that has to be told.' (Alan Jones) Few rugby league players were more notorious than John Elias. The menacing forward not only intimidated his opponents on the paddock; he also led a double life as a career criminal and stand-over man. Starting in the driver's seat of a stolen Holden at age 14, Elias's crimes grew more brazen as his football CV expanded to include over a dozen clubs. Illegal bookmaking rings, fire-arms trading, shootings, brothels, seedy card dens and the biggest match-fixing scandal in the game's recent history were all part of his off-field routine that eventually culminated in three prison sentences. Loved by high-profile friends such as Wayne Bennett, Alan Jones, John Ibrahim and John Singleton and loathed by his enemies, John Elias now owns one of the most colourful stories in Australian sport - a roller-coaster ride from the ecstasy of grand final glory to the depths of a maximum security jail cell. Sin Bin is John's incredible tale. You'll never look at John Elias, or rugby league, the same way again. John was born in Lebanon in 1962 and after moving to Punchbowl in Sydney's west played in the NRL for clubs including Newtown, Brisbane Souths, Wests, Easts and Canterbury. Several stints in Gaol, including an eighteenth month sentence in Long Bay at age sixteen, and his other off field activities saw John become a fixture in Sydney's underworld scene. He went on to set up the Lebanese national team, The Cedars, and has played, captained and coached the side in numerous successful campaigns.

While the rugby league world tried to come to terms with the vulnerability of 'The King', Wally and his family prepared for the toughest battle of his life. But the surgery wouldn't be the end of his struggle ...Out of the Shadows is Wally's startlingly candid account of his life since his retirement from rugby league - from the darkest days of depression and debilitating seizures to his hard-fought recovery and triumphant return to the nation's TV screens.
