    You could see if Craig Bellamy has finished with his copy.

    Track down Tom on Sunday, and see what he can do for you, guaranteed he will be around somewhere.

    In the back of Jamie's utility, under the radar!

    Tom K is working on an updated version that takes it up to the present and includes a forecast of at least five more premierships for Manly before Des retires.

    I've got one at home. Really one of the worst sporting biographies I've read. Tommy's style didn't sit well with me when your talking about a footy legend.

    I have a copy,signed by Des, I bought it from a second hand bookstore in Newtown a couple of years ago, it took a bit of searching on the net for one as they are out of print.
    As far as football biographies go,I think I could have done better,

    I lost my copy in our move from Brisbane to Lismore, but as has been said it was no "Schindlers list".

    If i remember correctly Des has a brother who became a missionary and Des toyed with the idea himself. Might help with Hoppa.
