Book Review #128 - Openside: My Journey to the World Cup by David Pocock

Based on his spectacular rise and his incredible talent and drive, this book is David’s insight into the world of Rugby. From his early days growing up in Zimbabwe, immigrating to Australia and playing for the Australian Schoolboys, his debut with Western Australia’s The Force, to his call up to the Wallabies, he has won many honours in many games and is held in great esteem by fans and peers alike.

In My Journey To The Rugby World Cup, David shares the life and times of a professional rugby player. It includes key tournaments in Rugby throughout 2011: Super Rugby, Tri-Nations, Bledisloe, as well as the highlight of the Rugby calendar – the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

My Rating: 4/5

I was interested to read this book because I knew it would have more depth than your average athlete's autobiography.

It took me alot less time to read this than other autobiographies I have read, simply because it was always interesting.

Even the onfield part of the book was interesting which was the part I thought I wouldn't like.

The writing was very mature and had vivid descriptions especially for the author's age.
