Biography

Brian Moore is one of the most famous England rugby players of all time, winning a total of 64 England caps between 1987 and 1995.

He played in three World Cups, won three Grand Slams (1991, 1992 and 1995), went on two British Lions tours and in 1991 was voted Rugby World Player of the Year. Since retiring from rugby, he has become a prolific commentator on sport, broadcasting for the BBC and writing for The Daily Telegraph. He was nominated for Sports Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards in 2009.

Brian’s activities have reached beyond the boundaries of rugby. He practiced as a solicitor for 17 years and has recently released his second autobiography, “Beware of the Dog: Rugby’s Hardman Reveals All”, which won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award in 2010. William Hill spokesman and co-founder of the prize, Graham Sharpe, said: “As a trained solicitor and a lover of opera, fine wine and Shakespeare, Brian Moore is no ordinary sportsman. So it follows that this is no ordinary book. Candid and rigorous, it’s a uniquely engaging book and a fascinating exploration of what lies beneath the tough exterior of one of England’s greatest rugby players.”
