This isn’t just another candid tell-all about a sporting legend. Rather, it’s a book about the human spirit with tales about the pursuit of dreams and overcoming adversity and challenges thrown into the mix.

The life of Victor Matfield, legend, icon and yes, eyecandy to some, is explored in this can’t-put-down autobiography.

If you want to know what it’s really like to be a Springbok, this is a must-read.

In his own words Matfield talks you through what it takes to succeed, to win for the Bulls and the Springboks, and the hard work and sacrifices that need to be made by professional sportsmen.

He touches on the disastrous Kamp Staaldraad, delves into controversial decisions by bad coaches and reveals the lighter side of travelling the world.

It gives the reader insight into what’s really going on behind the scenes in SA and world rugby and also offers some very personal details about Matfield, who’s captained SA and is widely regarded as one of the best locks in the world.
