On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Steve Price. 

Steve is a legend of rugby league on both sides of the Tasman. In Australia he played 222 games for the Bulldogs and 16 for Australia before moving to New Zealand in 2005 to captain the Warriors. 

Steve’s impact on New Zealand transcended rugby league where he racked up 91 caps for the Warriors across four years, but also opened a supermarket in Waipu, coached rugby league at Mt Albert Grammar school and became a pillar of his community, which was recognised when he was appointed a Member of the NZ Order of Merit in 2010. 

In this episode we talk about Steve’s high-achieving family, and how two of his kids are now professional athletes, the tragic loss of his father to suicide last year and how it impacted him, what makes a good leader, and how he navigated challenges across his career like the scandals that enveloped the Bulldogs and the loss of Sonny Fai at the Warriors, *That* Origin fight, behind the scenes of the Supermarket business, Celebrity Treasure Island and ,much, much more. 

Steve may well be NZ’s favourite Australian, and after listening to this it will be easy to see why. He’s achieved incredible success in all facets of his life and has so much brilliant wisdom to share. This was a really special one.
