In this new book Phil Gifford will cover, by nation and by sport, the personal rivalries that have become legendary. The book will not only cover key rivalries between New Zealand sportsmen and their international competitors but also great rivalries on an international stage. To name just a few, these include: John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg; Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett: the handshake that ��looked as if he had been handed a turd�� bodyline: cricket played to the potential death in Australia 1932-1933; Don Revie and Brian Clough: ��The Damned United�� was based on fact and there��s a video to prove it; Quade Cooper and Richie McCaw: when your nana has to come out swinging for you; the Silver Ferns and Australia in netball: when Norma Plummer called the kiwis ��scrubbers�� Senna and Prost: petrol and fire on the race track; Steve Williams and Tiger Woods: the most bizarre bust-up in golf. Told with Gifford��s trademark humour and encyclopedic knowledge of all things sporting, this book will be one to read again and again.
