For the Love of the Game by Murray Barnett (signed by the author)
Queensland State of Origin legends are indelibly printed on the minds of rugby league supporters – Lewis, Meninga, Lockyer. They are lauded for their contributions to the greatest game of all and rightfully so. But what about all the great players who played for Queensland before Origin? They are not so easily remembered, but this does not mean their status should be in any way diminished. This book is a tribute to their courage, dedication and spirit – and to their love of the game.
‘For years I was one of the many proud fans attending games at the Exhibition Grounds and Lang Park, supporting the Mighty Maroons. To see that some of those players who donned the famous jersey, are to receive recognition for their efforts, via this book, makes me proud to be a Queenslander.’ Wally Lewis
‘For the sake of the Queensland Rugby League and its history, books like this are incredibly important. The more we know about our past the more we get to appreciate our future. I have had the pleasure of watching these formidable players or meeting these gentlemen of Rugby League. The game of Rugby League has changed over the years but be reassured they still would of been champions today.’ Mal Meninga
