Winning the Fight

Maggie Alphonsi, Gavin Mairs

From Shelf: The BA Christmas Catalogue.

Go behind the scenes with Maggie Alphonsi - the iconic face of women's rugby and member of the England side that won the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup. This is her extraordinary against-all-the-odds story of how she became the best player in the world despite having to battle against racism, sexism, and prejudice.

Shortlisted for the Sports Book Awards Autobiography of the Year

Maggie Alphonsi is not only a national sporting icon, the face of international women's rugby and star player of the England side that won the World Cup in 2014. She is also an inspirational and totemic figure who transcends sport.

The compelling story of her life makes her achievements even more extraordinary. Hers is an against-all-the-odds tale, becoming the best player in the world despite having to battle against racism, sexism, and prejudice.

It is a book forged from the raw emotion, passion, and testimony of an iconic player, who rose to the elite of world sport when the world was seemingly stacked against her. It is a moving and revealing story of a woman who was not prepared to be defined by anyone but herself and gives the reader a unique insight into how she met her goals.
