Few NRL players in the last decade have had the talent of Todd Carney. From his debut season with the Canberra Raiders where he was awarded 'Rookie of the Year' he stood out as a player of boundless skills. He went on to win awards such as the Dally M for the NRL's best player, w...as twice voted the game's best five-eight, won the Provan-Summons Medal (the People's Choice Award) and was recognised by the Rugby League International Federation as the International Player of the Year. However, though his talent matched that of rugby league greats like Thurston, Smith and Slater, his career was constantly derailed by off-field behaviour, and was finally brought crashing down by a leaked online photograph of what became the infamous 'bubbler' incident. The constant features of his downward spiral were an abuse of alcohol, and a reckless immaturity. Todd, now aged 32, has written a book where he takes full responsibility and details honestly and frankly the great highs and appalling lows of one of football's most sensational careers.
