Synopsis How many sportspeople do you know with more than 550 caps to their credit? Rowan Brassey claims that many, having represented his country continuously for 22 years.

When Rowan took up bowls at 18, after a serious injury cut short a promising rugby career, he became part of a new wave of younger players who were to take the sport by storm.

Dubbed 'Ice Man' and 'Radar' for his extraordinary skill, he is the consummate professional, participating each year in the Australian League and competing internationally on the world stage.

In Leading from the Front, he shares techniques and secrets that have helped him win seven national and two world titles. He's played with and against most of the game's greats and in this entertaining, informative and often amusing biography, he provides shrewd advice on how to improve your game.
