Freddy Fittler’s Season on the Sidelines

freddy-fittler‘I love the way Freddy loves Rugby League. Look we all know that he sees the world a little differently and when it comes to talking footy that’s a good thing!’ Andrew Johns

 Following on from the success of The Fittler Files comes The Fittler Files 2, a review of the 2012 rugby league season from round one through to the grand final, covering all the big events both on and off the field. Not simply a rehash of the regular, NRL-sanctioned press conferences and news, this is a genuine inside look at rugby league from a trusted and well-connected team. Written with Brad’s brand of honesty and humour, and including over 100 photographsThe Fittler Files 2012 is the perfect gift for the footy fan this Christmas.

Brad ‘Freddy’ Fittler in his own words ‘played a bit of footy’ (40 Tests and World Cup matched, 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 is 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 as good as life gets, Freddy reckons of his season spent chasing the game.

Adam Thomson began work with the Australian Radio Network in both production and on air roles across their 3 Sydney stations, Mix 106.5, WSFM and the Edge 96.1.
