Michael Maguire is the coach of the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and the architect of their incredible 2014 season that culminated in Grand Final victory. This book will be Maguire's behind the scenes account of the season, match by match. All of South's coaching staff will be involved in putting it together (part of Maguire's desire to do the book is to make sure they get the credit they deserve as the unsung heroes of the victory), but the overall voice and authorship will be Maguire's.
