THE MASTER – THE LIFE & TIMES
OF DALLY MESSENGER
“A very worthwhile read.”
— Inside Sport
Dally Messenger was an Australian sporting superstar in the early years of the 20th century – a rugby league immortal, rugby union champion, and the most popular sporting personality of his era.
He represented the Kangaroos in rugby league, the Wallabies in rugby union, and also played for New Zealand in the 13-man code.
Thousands of fans in Australia, England and Wales flocked to footy grounds when he was playing, and he his still revered as an icon in both codes to this very day.
The son of a professional rower, Messenger led the push for footballers to be allowed to fairly share in the financial profits of the game.
The Master is a popular and authoritative account of the life and times of a superlative sportsman, a tribute to a footballer without peer, and an inspiring story for all those who would marvel at this sporting excellence and outstanding achievements.
“An engrossing tale.”
