In this frank and inspiring memoir, Neven talks about his extraordinary success as a rugby player. A lock and number eight, Neven represented Wellington at a provincial level, before achieving the ultimate in New Zealand rugby - wearing the revered All Black jersey. His contemporaries included Tiny White, Don Clarke, Wilson Whineray, Kelvin Tremain, Colin Meads and Ian Clarke.

But this is not just a memoir of rugby achievements; Neven talks frankly about the difficulties in his life 'when the crowd stops roaring' and the reality away from the rugby field. There are immense challenges, including a suicide attempt and his battle with alcoholism.

But there is also hope, triumph and new beginnings with Neven going on to give back and help others who have lost their way.
