When John Eales was starting out in rugby as a teenager, he wished he had a practical guide to the game. Years later, he decided to write one. It's truly a book for all levels of player. All the skills of the game are covered: tackling, kicking, passing, catching, beating the man, set plays, and rucks and mauls. In addition, John explores every position on the field in depth --- from the positional strategems of the fullback, to the scrummaging technique required of the tight-head prop.

He gives insights that could only come from one of the world's seasoned internationals.

Coaches, too, will benefit from this book as it treats each aspect of the game in painstaking detail, as well as demonstrating a simple, but powerful, integrated approach.

The most successful captain in the history of Australian rugby, John Eales debuted for the Wallabies in 1991 and captained the side from 1996 until the end of his test career in 2001. He participated in two successful World Cup campaigns, captaining the latter in 1999, and led Australia through three Bledisloe Cup and two Tri-Nations victories. He led the Wallabies to their first ever series victory over the British and Irish Lions and represented his state in 112 Queensland Reds games.

He was named the 2002 Queenslander of the Year, inducted into the Australia Institute of Sport's Best of the Best in 2011, awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 and made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 1999 for services to the community and rugby.

    I bought this for my nephew and it's the first time in a while that I got a "Wow, thanks!" rather than a "Oh, how nice..."
