Description

Ray ‘Rabbits’ Warren is the legendary voice of Australian sports commentary. People tell him he must have drunk a bottle of scotch and smoked a packet of cigarettes every day to have the voice that he has. That’s not the case; at least, not any more . . .

The son of a railway worker, Ray placed his first bet on a horse called Playboy at the age of just six, and won. A lifelong love of the track – and the punt – was born.

During his remarkable broadcasting career, which has now spanned almost five decades, Ray has called three Melbourne Cups, Commonwealth and Olympic Games swimming, and countless rugby league matches alongside his mates Fatty, Sterlo and Gus.

Here, for the first time, Ray reveals the man behind the microphone. He speaks of the great highs and devastating lows of his career and life in the same way he calls every sporting event: with great passion, colour and candour.

‘When it comes to rugby league commentary, there is little dispute that Ray Warren is the best in the business … I know you’ll enjoy his story.’ – Alan Jones AO

‘It’s not the vision that sells this game. It’s not just the amazing feats of these mighty players. It’s the way Ray Warren calls the action. The sense of theatre he brings to the call. Ray makes the game better. He brings it to life in lounge rooms all over the country. Ray Warren is the voice of rugby league.’ – Phil Gould

‘I loved rugby league growing up in Sydney ... and you can’t talk rugby league without talking Ray Warren. They are synonymous.’ – Hugh Jackman

    Phenomenal read about a great broadcaster. I learnt a lot about Rabs and a lot about myself - his mantra of showing passion and dedication while you follow your dreams resonates very strongly. Laughed - raucously - on occasions and felt empathy on others. Working in media, I was able to glean so much from this book, especially the old school values that Ray has stuck to, but are so often forgotten. A must read. Inspirational.
  • Great read

    If you love rugby league, you'll love this book. An easy but enjoyable read about the greatest caller the game has ever known.

    I haven't read a book in a few years and I heard the authors spruicking this on 2GB. I've grown up listening to Ray being now in my 40's. I get so much enjoyment from Rays calls and it was great enjoyment reading his book. So much so I read it in one day. Great life and great story. Go the Rabbits.
