The revealing autobiography of New Zealand rugby legend Jerome Kaino. At just 21 years old Jerome Kaino was touted as the next big thing. In his first year of professional rugby, he made spectacular debuts for Auckland, the Blues and the All Blacks. It was a dream beginning for a quiet Samoan kid from South Auckland. But just as quickly as it had all begun, his life and career began to spiral out of control.  With over 50 All Black caps, 100 matches for the Blues and a Rugby World Cup victory to his name, Jerome Kaino is one of New Zealand's true sporting heroes. Now for the very first time, Kaino lays bare his greatest triumphs and adversities, with rare insights ahead of perhaps his greatest test of all - winning back-to-back world cups for New Zealand

About Jerome

Having played every game for Auckland in his first year of NPC rugby, Jerome Kaino was picked as a future superstar of the game. He debuted for the All Blacks that same year, playing out of his skin against the Barbarians at Twickenham, a man-of-the-match performance. But by his own admission, it was too much and too soon. Jerome talks openly about a drinking lifestyle and the serious injuries that brought his early All Blacks career to a grinding halt. But through adversity came strength. Seven years later, Jerome played every minute of the All Blacks victorious Rugby World Cup campaign, followed by a lucrative Japanese rugby contract and a remarkable return to the All Blacks squad in 2014/15 to take up the challenge of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
