Book DescriptionA behind-the-scenes look at the business and fun of sport from the man who has run the Football Federation of Australia and currently heads the Australian Rugby Union John Eales holding the Webb Ellis Cup aloft after Australia's triumph at the 1999 Rugby World Cup. John Aloisi tearing off his jersey after driving home the penalty kick against Uruguay to lead the Socceroos to the 2006 World Cup for the first time in 30 years.

He would go on to bring the tournament to Australian soil in 2003 in what many consider to be the best ever' World Cup. I
