Confessions of an (un)professional rugby player




The Peter Crouch of Rugby, How to Be a Footballer meets Brian Moore's Beware of the Dog

The unfiltered truth about being a rugby player - from the horsey's mouth.This book is not just about how I got back on my horse and went clippity-clop all the way to the World Cup final in Japan.
