What a season. Leinster were looking for Heineken Cup glory, Ireland were chasing their first Grand Slam in fifty-seven years, and the Lions went to New Zealand seeking only their second ever series win over the All Blacks. One man was at the heart of everything: Brian O'Driscoll. The Ireland and Lions captain kept a diary charting the toughest and most exhilarating year of his career. From the gruelling winter-time training sessions in Ireland and rehab sessions in Poland to the controversial tackle in New Zealand that ended O'Driscoll's Lions tour and threatened his career, "A Year in the Centre" is a brutally honest and uniquely revealing glimpse into the life of a rugby superstar who plays it hard on and off the pitch.
