Rugby League was Alex McKinn's life. Born into a football family, from five years old Alex played junior football with the Aberdeen Tigers at McKinn Oval, a ground named after his grandfather. A talented and committed young player Alex was signed to the Dragons as a 16 year old and made his NRL debut at 19. Captaining the Junior Kangaroos, and having established himself as an NRL player at 22, Alex was clearly one of the leading players of his generation. However in the 39th minute of the Newcastle Knights vs Melbourne Storm game in March last year Alex's life changed forever. A tackle gone wrong damaging his spinal cord leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. In the days that followed Alex was told t only was his football career over, but he would likely never walk again. Like any young person in this situation - let alone a professional athlete - this was devastating. Alex's life as he knew it was over. The story of what followed, both privately and publicly, is simply extraordinary. Far from being over, Alex came to realize a new life had just begun. Unbroken is the very personal story behind a most public tragedy. For the first time Alex talks of his exact thoughts and feelings during the those first fateful moments on the field, and with raw honesty takes us through his painful first days and weeks in hospital, including the heartbreaking moment he is told the ramifications of his injury.
