Description

Ruben Wiki is the talismanic leader of the Kiwis rugby league team - a 12-season veteran of the NRL who, in 2005, led New Zealand to an historic series victory over Australia and guided his side to Tri-Nations glory. Wiki's story is one of raw courage and genuine pride. South Auckland born and educated, he is immensely proud of his roots and his Maori heritage. In this book Wiki will talk of his pride in the New Zealand jersey and how, as captain of the national side, he was able to imbue that same pride and sense of belief into his teammates. Wiki will also talk of his 11 seasons with the Canberra Raiders, including the premiership win in 1994 when he partnered the legendary Mal Meninga in the centres. He will talk about his time with the Junior Kiwis when he and All Blacks captain Tana Umaga wreaked havoc amongst their Aussie counterparts. He will also reveal why he decided to see out his career with the Warriors after turning his back on the club in a storm of controversy in the mid-90s.
