Description of this Book
'I'm not a superhero, I don't wear my jocks over my jeans, I can't deflect lightning bolts with my hand and I'm not likely to be found rescuing damsels in distress - unless they happen to be my beloved daughters Kiera or Taylor.' And so begins Piri Weepu's biography. Debuting for the All Blacks at the tender age of 20, it has been a whirlwind eight years for Piri Weepu, leading up to that dramatic final whistle of the Rugby World Cup 2011 final. This biography is an insight into the life of a shy boy from Wainuiamata, who was moulded in the stronghold of rugby league, but broke free and became one of the most memorable All Blacks of his generation. The book includes a first-hand, blow by blow account of the World Cup and fascinating insights into the injuries that have plagued his career.
