Raging Bull: The Autobiography of the England Rugby Legend - Phil Vickery with Alison Kervin

HarperSport, 2010, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Raging Bull is the eagerly-awaited autobiography of Phil Vickery, the iconic tight-head prop’s own incredible story and the tale of a true legend of rugby Union.

Vickery is a warrior — a tough, no-nonsense player who is as fearless arid uncompromising on the pitch as he is a great raconteur off it. His career spans amateurism and professionalism, and the journey starts in the Cornish countryside and ends in two World Cup finals and two tours with the British and Irish Lions.

Vickery is a hugely passionate player. He sports a tattoo which announces ‘I’ll fight you to the death’, and has overcome serious injuries (including eight operations) in a career of stunning highs and devastating lows. He plays his sport in the best traditions of rugby and he is a story-teller par excellence.

Raging Bull will transport readers to the England front row in a Six Nations clash, to the changing room in a Lions Test, and to the bars of many an amateur rugby club. It will remind fans what rugby is really all about — the fun and camaraderie, and the intensity and commitment, as the former herdsman turned England and Lions star takes you to the heart and soul of the sport he loves.”
