Cheats and Chuckers is a colourful collection of infamous (and sometimes ingenious) rorts, schemes and swindles covering over a hundred years of Australian sports history - in all its underhanded glory. From illegal goat racing and fake pigeon races to faulty oars, underweight ostrich riders and jockeys who jump off mid-race and head for the hills, there is never a dull moment. Perfect reading for all sports lovers.
