The 1980s and 1990s witnessed a serious boom in rugby league book publishing, with everyone from Wayne Pearce to Ray Price putting their life stories and footy journeys down on paper.
On Inside Sport’s Dead In Goal rugby league podcast this week, we had the honour of catching up with and learning from one of the authors behind many of those now-retro footy books of the era, well-respected author Alan Whiticker.
LISTEN TO DEAD IN GOAL HERE NOW:
Alan has written over 20 rugby league publications since 1988, and has penned just has many titles about many other subjects, too. But it’s his rugby league knowledge which were we interested in tapping into. We thank Alan for his time on this week’s show.
But it isn’t all just about us. Once again our loyal listeners have contributed greatly to our weekly league recordings, offering up their own nominations for all-time favourite rugby league book titles.
So come with us on a literary rugby league journey for the ages. You may pick up an idea or two about what to read next. RIP in!
