Annual Tom Brock lecture ; 12. 1444-7606

Summary

Based on a 50-year association with rugby league, Mr Fahey reflects on how a magnificent game, that regularly attempts self-destruction, survives and grows to new levels of excitement with each passing season. Rugby league, he suggests, is often exasperating but is always exhilarating. But is it indestructible?
