1 - 2 weeks availability
Here, the flamboyant Hull and St Helens superstar tells his hilarious, shocking and explosive life story. Longy - the only player to win the Lance Todd Trophy three times - tells the inside story of THAT bet against his own team and exposes secrets that will shock the rugby league establishment to its core. In his own words, he describes with startling honesty the hell-raising experiences of his rags-to-riches journey. But it isn't all about his wild reputation - Long has also had an incredible rugby league career, winning every major honour in the game at club level as well as notching up 15 caps for Great Britain and another five for the England side. He has twice set the Super League record for the most points scored in a season, with 284 in 1999 and a staggering 352 in 2000.
Sean Long is one of the finest rugby league half-backs to ever pick up the oval ball. Long started his pro career at his hometown club Wigan Warriors and, after a short stop-over at Widnes, he was signed by St. Helens in 1997 to fill the boots of another Saints legend, Bobby Goulding. Long has won every major honor in the game at club level and is the only player in Challenge Cup history to win the Lance Todd Trophy three times as man of the match in the 2001, 2004, and 2006 finals. He also won 15 caps for Great Britain and five for England before retiring from international rugby on 16 April 2007. Still one of the most colorful characters ever to play the game, he continues to wear the No. 7 shirt at St. Helens.
