About the Book

'I didn't know Matthew could read or write' - Matt's dad

From the Sheds is Matthew Johns' fascinating, frequently hilarious look behind the scenes of Rugby League. the creator of the self-confessed Aussie legend Reg Reagan - as well as a tough competitor who notched up almost 200 first grade NRL games and eight matches for the Kangaroos, winning a premiership with Newcastle Knights along the way - who better than Matthew to give an insider's view of the superstars, larrikins and entertainers who make Rugby League the compelling, colourful and occasionally comical sport that it is? In his latest book, the Footy Show star reveals countless tales displaying the lighter side of League. Matthew tells why David Waite unwittingly vandalised a stranger's Holden Camira, how a nine-year-old Brett Finch proved to be the world's most irritating sand boy, and how Paul Harragon's pre-wedding celebrations erupted into an all-in brawl - and Matty's role in all of the above. From the Sheds is a rare insight into the spirit of Rugby League, written by someone who embodies the humour and the grit of the toughest game of all. 'Geez ... I just got over the other son's book'- Matt's dad 'I didn't know Matthew could read or write'- Matt's dad
