This book needed a final edit. It has many typos and Page 241 has sentences repeated. Very repetitive with different players going over the same games and saying similar things. Learned a lot about players I grew up watching. Souths had many issues in their Glory Days. The players were tougher back then. ( )

If St George were The Beatles of rugby league, with hits year after year in the early part of the decade, then South Sydney were surely The Rolling Stones. And just as The Beatles vacated the world stage and surrendered the title of best rock and roll band in the world to The Stones, South Sydney assumed the mantle of Sydney premiers and produced their own 'golden era' from 1967 to 1971. Glory Days: The Story of South Sydney's Golden Era is the inside story of the men who made history with the Rabbitohs during five consecutive grand final appearances. This was a record-breaking period punctuated by an upset loss to Balmain in the 1969 grand final. Author Alan Whiticker takes you behind the scenes of a marvellous era of rugby league. The South Sydney Rugby League Club is one of only two remaining rugby league foundation clubs in Australia, and the one that resonates with most rugby league fans. There is a saying 'When South Sydney is going well, rugby league is going well'. Having claimed 20 premierships, they are the most successful club in the history of the game. Glory Days looks back at Souths' Golden Era, with in-depth interviews with former players, and never-before-heard commentary about that era. This book is a must for fans of both South Sydney and rugby league - a nostalgic look back at the good ol' days.… (more)
