Rugby league is full of ridiculous stories.

Australian journalist and author Glen Humphries has done his best to capture some of the wildest tales in his new book Jack Gibson's Fur Coat: Rugby League Oddities and Artefacts.

Glen has written a wide range of books about topics like crossing beer, music and even the true crime story of the Kingsgrove Slasher in Sydney.

Glen's latest book is a treasure trove of stories that show how much has changed around the sport over the years, but in some cases it hasn't moved on it all.

Glen is a lifelong rugby league lover.
