Alex Murphy has always been hard to ignore—in a glittering rugby league career spanning four decades, fame and controversy have always been present. Murphy's row with Wigan chairman and one-time friend Maurice Lindsay, when he was accused of trying to strangle him with his own telephone cord; the time Syd Hines headbutted him at Wembley, believing Murphy had deliberately taken a dive to get him sent off; and much more are given the unique Murphy treatment in this no-holds-barred autobiography. Murphy recalls the men he played for, with and against in the past, airs his views on rugby league in the 1990s, and considers the influence of TV and money on his beloved sport.
