$29.99

Bob Rose is one of the true legends of Australian Rules Football. Regarded by many as the best rover of all time, he was also coach of his beloved Collingwood for many years. Bob's brilliant ball skills, his toughness as a player, his inspiring leadership and his unerring sense of fair play set him above the pack over and over again. However Bob's life is about much more than sport. It is also about a remarkable family: his wife Elsie, who gave up a promising singing career, and his sons Robert and Peter one a champion sportsman who became a quadriplegic in the prime of his career, and the other a celebrated poet and writer who took a very different path.
