    I just started reading Andrew Voss' new book stuff you may have missed and I must say it's a highly enjoyable read. Some very good stories about the history about our game and some personal stuff from him about he became a commentator. I would recommend it to any follower of Rugby League.

    I haven't gotten-around to reading this one yet but it's definitely on the list.
    Love Vossy and his quirky take on the game.

    Just got it last weekend for my birthday. Looking forward to reading it. Was very intrigued when he was talking about it on BSB.

    Vossy is the only commentator in the world that would check out the local delicacies when calling world cup games in foreign lands so he could talk about them during the game! He called it right on hull patties, best nosh in the World!!

    I wonder what he thought of Pie, mash and liquor and jellied Eels when he was covering games in London?
    When i lived in London i didn't mind the pie & mash but the liquor was horrible which goes with it and so were the jellied Eels

    He frequented RLP a fair bit making the book. Had a few conversations with him.

    He is intensely passionate about accuracy.

    Although I'm yet to buy the Book I did come across it for 20 South Pacific Pesos at Target in Bathurst.
