9780241966358: Becoming a Lion

Johnny Sexton—the man who pulled the strings for the Lions—gives an intimate insight into the rugby life in Becoming a Lion. With three Heineken Cups and one British and Irish Lions tour victory under his belt, Johnny Sexton is by some distance the leading fly-half in the northern hemisphere. Over the course of the Lions' first victorious Test series in 16 years, Sexton was the man pulling the strings. His try in the third test was the decisive blow, and his joyous celebrations after scoring were echoed in homes across Britain and Ireland. Becoming a Lion is an intimate portrait of life at the highest levels of the professional game—at Leinster, with Ireland, and on tour with the Lions.

About the Author :

Johnny Sexton attended St Mary's College, where he won a Leinster senior schools cup in 2002. At Leinster he won three Heineken Cups, taking man of the match honors for his performance in the 2011 final, when he scored two tries in leading a comeback from a 16-point halftime deficit. He started all three tests for the British and Irish Lions in Australia.

Description du livre Penguin Books Ltd. Paperback. État : new. BRAND NEW, Becoming a Lion, Johnny Sexton, Johnny Sexton - the man who pulled the strings for the Lions - gives an intimate insight into the rugby life. As of May 2009, Johnny Sexton was the little-known backup fly-half for Leinster, the chronically underachieving Irish province. But when Felipe Contepomi went down with an injury early in the Heineken Cup semi-final against a dominant Munster team, Sexton came on, nailed a penalty with his first touch of the game, and helped Leinster to a crushing victory. Four years, three Heineken Cups later and one British and Irish Lions tour victory later, Sexton is by some distance the leading fly-half in the northern hemisphere. When the 2013 Lions squad was selected, there was almost universal agreement that Sexton was the most important single player heading to Australia. And over the course of the Lions' first victorious Test series in sixteen years, Sexton was the man pulling the strings. His try in the third test was the decisive blow, and his joyous celebrations after scoring were echoed in homes across Britain and Ireland. Becoming a Lion is an intimate portrait of life at the highest levels of the professional game - at Leinster, with Ireland, and on tour with the Lions. "Bracing and fascinating in equal measure". (Malachy Clerkin, Irish Times). "Riveting.Opens a remarkable window into the stresses, hurts and insecurities of a professional life in rugby". (Vincent Hogan, Irish Independent). "Captures all the jagged edges that make Sexton one of Irish sport's most compelling characters". (Sunday Times). "Sets a great benchmark for sports autobiographies, given that it is so honest". (Matt Cooper, Today FM). "Engrossing". (Rugby World Ireland). N° de réf. du libraire B9780241966358
