But his greatest love, and his true genius, was for rugby. Now nearing the end of a career that has seen him win over seventy Ireland caps - a number that a great many supporters and pundits believe should be considerably higher - and attain the captaincy of the top English club, Leicester, Geordan Murphy tells his own story for the first time. "A delightful read...brilliant". (Rugby World). "Bright, breezy, entertaining and revealing". (Gerry Thornley, "Irish Times"). "An open, honest and entertaining book". ("RTE Guide").
