Stephen Donald etched himself into All Blacks folklore with that 'kick' in the 2011 Rugby World Cup final at Eden Park. Donald, one of the country's most popular All Blacks, had not originally been wanted for the World Cup squad. He was whitebaiting in the Waikato and effectively off the rugby grid... read more

For the sport loving dad, this is the latest rugby biography. We have much to celebrate when it comes to New Zealand rugby and this new book follows a long list of ‘rugby reads’. Stephen shares his childhood dreams borne on the schoolyard fields through to the intense pressure of measuring up to the All Black standards. His success is built on strong family bonds and friendship that have sustained the highs and lows of sport. He’s experienced success that was so close yet despair quickly followed but he dug deep to get the breakthroughs and achieve sporting prowess. We are privileged to have his story especially as he is normally a guarded, quiet man.

It amazes me how society can absolutely annihilate a persons reputation and shred their confidence and self worth. Stephen Donald faced this when he missed a conversion in 2010 while playing Australia.New Zealand s arch sporting rival. He was written off by journalists, selectors and die hard fans, who blamed Stephen for the loss. His past achievements didn't matter. This was not the way Stephen wanted to finish his international rugby playing career. One year later during the final of the world cup Stephen Donald runs onto the field and converts a crucial goal that won New Zealand the rugby world cup. I'm as patriotic as any other Kiwi and love watching The All Blacks and really enjoyed reading about Stephens highs and lows.
Stephen pokes fun and himself and his team mates and comes across as a good honest kiwi bloke, hes not self centered or self absorbed and his story is a cracking good read, for fans of The AB's and sport fans everywhere.
