Plugger and the Mighty Swans (Jim Main)

Plugger and the Mighty Swans
Jim Main

Blurb: This is one of those special books. Warm but revealing. Taking you into the boardroom, the change rooms, the private boxes... the centre of the Sydney Cricket Ground at midnight and a strange, strange ritual.

Jim Main is a passionate - 'yes, obsessed' - Swans fan. He's also one of Australia's top football writers and sports authors. In Plugger and the Mighty Swans he takes you behind the scenes of the Swans' all but unbelievable run to the 1996 Grand Final.

You're there as the Swans nearly die and are only saved by a rival club (Collingwood) which doesn't want another club (Carlton) to sneak an unfair advantage. You're there for the dash to sign goal king Tony 'Plugger' Lockett. You're there in the 1960s, 50s, 40s, 30s, way back to the 1860s.
