A rugby league player in the early 1980's battles against the changing game and the betrayal of those he has been loyal to. Alienated and desperate, he struggles to keep an identity he fears he'll be lost without.
Overall I found this series to be quite good. The characters are believable and fairly true to the 1%ers I know.
I however find the absolute disregard for helmet laws to be very immersion breaking, helmet laws in Aus came in during 1961 (Jan 1st 1961) and the real 1%ers I know did not disregard the helmet laws (it wasn't worth the police hassle), especially considering this is set during the late 70's early 80's as is displayed by the cars shown, the characters in this show would have grown up with helmet laws in place therefore the characters would be likely to abide by the laws regarding helmet use. The only scene where a character is shown prominently wearing a helmet is one where the helmet clearly served it's purpose, he was injured not dead after suffering a head meets road incident. It is also very much an Americanisation of the series.
There is also a minor quibble that up until the mid-late 80's Harley's were not the bike of choice of the 1%ers it was generally heavily modified UJM's or British bikes.
