In this book Williams takes a light-hearted look at rugby at the very top in New Zealand and touches on some of the more controversial aspects of his career - including his earth-shattering dismissal from the Blues' tour of South Africa in 2007. Ali Williams breaks the mould as an All Black tight forward. A confirmed urbanite, Ali Williams switched his Super 14 allegiances from Auckland to Christchurch in 2007 after a much-publicised bust-up with Australian coach David Nucifora. from the Blues' tour of South Africa in 2007. As well, Williams revisits the failed 2007 World Cup campaign, looks at the All Blacks' rotation and reconditioning policies; the famous incident when his jaw was broken in a collision with Frenchman Sebastien Chabal and analyses differences in the Crusaders and Blues setups. He also talks of his charity work and explains the reasons why he stayed in New Zealand after the World Cup and thus turned his back on the big bucks on offer in Europe.
