Brad ‘Freddy’ Fittler in his own words ‘played a bit of footy’

(40 Tests and World Cup matches, 31 Origin games for NSW and 336 first-grade games – Penrith and Sydney Roosters), coached for a while (Sydney Roosters) – and enjoyed it all enormously.


Now, as a keen photographer, commentator (Channel 9) and occasional coach (City team) he continues to relish his involvement in the game that gave him his chance in life. This book is largely the product of weekly conversations and thoughts shared through season 2011 over coffee in a Sydney Harbourside park – just ‘talking football’. It was about as good as life gets, Freddy reckons of his season spent chasing the game.
