"There are good players, great players, then there's Willie Horne. He was on another planet to everyone else" KEN TRAILL, Great Britain loose forward. He was captain of Great Britain, England, Lancashire and Barrow. His style of play, like his style of captaincy, was courageous, decisive, inventive and inspiring. Willie Horne, as survey after survey of rugby league fans has endorsed, was one of the sport's all-time greats - many would claim THE all-time great. This is the Willie Horne story, an authorised biography with all the pace, wit and social commentary of a best-selling novel. It speaks volumes about the working class community that spawned the sport of rugby league. It has much to say about the game itself and the hard men who played it in the Forties and Fifties. But above all it is the story of a player who in terms of skill, leadership and sportsmanship stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries - and all who have followed since. "This is the best rugby league biography ever written." ROBERT GATE, Rugby Football League official historian. "Mike Gardner has done an expert job in charting Willie's lifeon and off the field. It's a superb story which works both as a tribute to a sporting great, and as an interesting slice of history from a northern, industrial town." MATT DAVIES, Sports Editor, North West Evening Mail. Revised and Updated 2012 - Now over 96,000 words, over 130 photographs and a new 9,500 word chapter bringing readers right up to date.
