On 20 October 2007,Mike Catt MBE made history by becoming the oldest player to appear in a Rugby World Cup final.It was also to be his last game for England in an international career stretching back 75 caps and 14 years.
The occasion completed an extraordinary renaissance for the 36-year-old whose international career had appeared to be over after he helped England win the 2003 World Cup in Australia. Earlier in 2007 he was not only recalled but appointed England captain by head coach Brian Ashton.For a player famously run over by Jonah Lomu in the 1995 World Cup and booed by England supporters at Twickenham in the late 1990's,it was a remarkable comeback.
Born in South Africa into a family of sports-obsessed brothers, Catt cut his teeth playing for Eastern Province.Frustrated at his lack of playing opportunities he came to England aged 21 where he signed for Bath after Gloucester had not answered his telephone call.
There he came into contact with many Red Rose greats, including Jerry Guscott,Phil de Glanville and Stuart Barnes. Together they were the golden boys of English rugby,playing hard off the field as well as on it,and winning many trophies along the way - including the Heineken Cup in 1998.
Catt has been dropped and re-selected by England more times than he can remember.He won a Grand Slam in the 1995 Five Nations Championship,and eight years later he kicked the ball into touch to bring an end to the unforgettable 2003 World Cup final win over Australia.
In 'Landing on My Feet' Catt gives unprecedented access to his personal highs and lows - his joy at getting married to his fiance Ali,and the subsequent trauma of nearly losing her and his daughter Evie in post-birth complications - and takes a look at the glorious highlights and the difficult setbacks of his professional career.
'Landing on My Feet' is a refreshingly honest and personal look at fourteen years at the top of international and club rugby,from one of the most distinguished and respected players in the game.
