Read full description of the books:
I decided to read the book "Richie McCaw - The Open Side" because I had received the book as a Christmas present and was interested to learn more about Richie McCaw and about the Rugby World Cup.
On the bingo board this book covers the category of an autobiography. I was interested to read an autobiography about Richie McCaw because I enjoy all things rugby so I didn't think it would be too much of a hard read.
The main character in the book is of course Richie McCaw. It was interesting to learn more about Richie McCaw the rugby player and the All Black captain. I also learnt that he is very intelligent and has done very well academically and he also loves to fly gliders. He has been very successful and is a great role model.
My favourite quote from the book was "This jersey will show up the frauds, the imposters. It'll squeeze those who look for short cuts. You won't last in this jersey if you're not prepared to do the things you need to do to fill it". - Richie McCaw. This was a quote used by Richie McCaw when he was talking to the All Black team. I think Richie was trying to get across how important it was to wear the All Black jersey with respect but that you need to go the extra mile to hold onto the jersey and to do it justice. Only 110% effort will be okay.
Something I learnt from the book is how hard the life of an All Black is - that they work really hard and a lot is expected of them both on and off the field. I also did not realise the level of pain Richie was in with his foot leading up to and in the Rugby World Cup final.
