    Raging Bull: The Gorden Tallis StoryFree Shipping


    I was walking towards the field and I saw Gorden running with the ball and there was this giant of a kid coming up to tackle him. I thought "Oh no, the big kid is going to kill my little Gorden." I closed my eyes, and when I opened them Gorden was still running and the other boy was lying on the ground not moving. I thought, "Oh no, my little Gorden has killed the big kid." - Judy Tallis on her son's Under 12s league debut.

    For almost 15 years Gorden Tallis has known the highs and lows of the world's toughest contact sport, rugby league. The man known as "Raging Bull" for his take-no-prisoners style of play has captained his country and State, enjoyed Origin and Grand Final glory, waged a personal war with controversial referee Bill Harrigan and heard the words that every footballer fears - "play another game and you could be crippled for life".

    Now, in 'Raging Bull', Tallis tells his own story (with acclaimed Courier Mail journalist Mike Colman). It charts his journey from a naive young kid from Townsville entering the bewildering and ruthless world of the ARL with the St George club in Sydney, through to becoming captain of the Brisbane Broncos and one of league's most respected - and feared - players.

    Tallis describes his life with an honesty, humour and passion rare among sportsmen and the result is a most compellingly readable and enjoyable sports book. Whether you love him or hate him, this book must be read by every fan of league.
