Darren Lockyer Autobiography

Darren Lockyer

Overview

The updated edition of the Rugby League superstar’s end-of-career autobiography. In 2011, NRL fans had the chance to share in a piece of rugby league history. The game’s record books were re-written, some taken to heights unlikely to ever be matched. Darren Lockyer celebrated his 34th birthday in 2011. 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. Lockyer holds the all-time appearance record for club, state and country. It is a feat no less a judge than Wayne Bennett declared would never be equalled. 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 recognisable 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 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.
