Steve Johnson – The Cat with the Giant Story

Free

Steve Johnson has become the king of reinvention – from misbehaving larrikin to premiership star; from Cat to Giant – and he's been at the heart of two of the most remarkable AFL teams of modern times: the great Geelong triple-premiership side, and the coming juggernaut of Greater Western Sydney. From troubled talent to AFL superstar, this is a story of redemption: of a larrikin with a competitive spirit that drove him to become one of the most successful and watchable players of the modern era.  Don’t miss your chance to meet and hear Steve at this special evening event.
