The Mark Ricciuto Story
Roo by Mark Ricciuto
Book DescriptionMark Ricciuto is a true champion of the AFL. In the decade and a half since he was signed by the Adelaide Crows, his list of achievements has been extraordinary. He has played over 300 premiership games in the quickest time on record - only 13 years and 83 days. He won the Brownlow Medal in 2003; was the Crows' Best and Fairest in 1998, 2003 and 2004, and Best Team Man 1994 and 2003. He is an eight-time All-Australian (twice as captain); and represented his country in the International Rules Series in 1998 and 2000. He has been club captain since 2001. It's a remarkable record for a boy from the Riverland, whose early life was spent on the family 40-acre fruit block, and where hard work and family values became second nature to him. 'Roo' is his story, revealing the man himself both off the field and on it.

The author took the tennis world by storm like no player in the history of the game. A shaggy-haired working-class kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he was prepared to battle for every point, to shout and scream until he was heard, and he didn't care whom he upset in doing so. He was brash, he was a brat. This title tells his story.
