One World Cup, a series win over the British & Irish Lions, two Tri Nations titles, three Super Rugby trophies and three Currie Cups...

These are one man's remarkable achievements in a career that spanned 16 incredible years. His name is Victor Matfield, and he is an international and a South African sporting legend. You want to read his story...

From growing up as a shy, sports-mad boy in Pietersburg to reaching the pinnacle of success in his rugby career, Victor learnt the hard way about dealing with the pleasures and pressures of life as a professional sportsman. In this much anticipated autobiography, he talks candidly about his relationships with his coaches, including Heyneke Meyer, Jake White, and Peter de Villiers, the strong bonds he forged with his teammates at the Bulls and in the national squad, and his deep love and respect for the Springbok jersey. He covers the controversies that dogged South African rugby during his time, the rise of Bulls rugby and their lack of form in his last rugby season, the Boks' controversial quarter-final departure from the Rugby World Cup in 2011, his retirement from rugby, and much, much more. 

Victor: My journey is undoubtedly the one book every rugby fan will want to read.


As new (AN): I'm hardly noticeably used and could be new. Some of my pages could be yellowed due to age but I am otherwise clean and flawless.
