Description

Now in paperback, the autobiography of one the greatest rugby league players of all time, who has announced his retirement at the end of 2018.Billy Slater has been called the best fullback ever to have played the game by rugby league greats and fans alike. With a glittering collection of personal and club honours, including three premierships, five Dally M awards and two Clive Churchill Medals, he holds the NRL record for the most tries scored by a fullback, and has delighted fans of the Melbourne Storm, Queensland State of Origin team and Australian Kangaroos for fifteen years.More than just a decorated player, however, Slater is a widely regarded and respected figure in rugby league. His story is one of a young country recruit with superb natural talent, who debuted for the Storm after just one pre-season in Melbourne and sent shockwaves through the State of Origin in just his second season in the NRL. But Slater capitalised on that talent with a fierce competitive drive and a relentless work ethic, which he learned from his parents and honed working in the racing industry before hitting the NRL stage.As well as the celebrated victories, Slater?s career has seen him confront the Melbourne Storm salary cap scandal, heartbreaking losses and a devastating shoulder injury that made him fear that he would never be able to hold his children again, let alone compete in a brutal sport like rugby league. Through it all Slater has emerged not merely as a great of the game, but as an even more resilient character, a respected spokesman for his sport, a devoted husband and father.Featuring contributions from rugby league legends like Cooper Cronk, Craig Bellamy, Darren Lockyer and Cameron Smith, and from Billy?s family, this paperback edition is updated to include the events of the 2017 and 2018 NRL seasons, including his comeback from injury to his starring role in the Storm?s 2017 grand final victory.The 2018 season has contained many milestones for Slater so far, including his 300th NRL game and his first ever game as captain of the Storm. He also joined the elite club of players who have made 30 State of Origin appearances, and Queenslanders will see Billy don the maroon jersey for the last time as he announced his retirement from representative football following at the end of the 2018 series.
