Waterstones Says

The Hurt is an unflinching account of the physical and mental demands of rugby, told by one of England’s most successful captains. Exploring his love of the game, his journey to international fame and the injury that ultimately forced him into retirement, Hartley’s book is both an inspirational and harrowing depiction of the cost of stardom.

Signed Bookplate Edition

A standard edition is available here.

'Rugby is great for the soul,' he writes, 'but terrible for the body.'

Rugby hurts. It demands mental resilience and resistance to pain. It explores character, beyond a capacity to endure punishment.

Dylan Hartley, one of England's most successful captains, tells a story of hard men and harsh truths. From the sixteen-year-old Kiwi who travelled alone to England, to the winner of ninety-seven international caps, he describes with brutal clarity the sport's increasing demand on players and the toll it takes on their mental health, as well as the untimely injury that shattered his dreams of leading England in the 2019 World Cup.

The Hurt is rugby in the raw, a unique insight into the price of sporting obsession.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Few have had more twists and turns in a pro rugby career than the now-retired Dylan Hartley. Never a one dimensional character on or off the field and led England to some famous wins.' - Robert Kitson, The Guardian

“Awesome Read”

I’ve always liked Dylan and have been a Saints supporter for years so I had to read this. It didn’t disappoint.

Dylan is brutally honest about his career and the sport itself whilst also remaining a gentleman. Parts... More
