Brian Moore on rugby

Brian Moore is my favourite Union TV commentator, with his trenchant opinions, Yorkie “it’s a bloody spade” attitude, and deep knowledge, especially of the scrum (where frankly I’m lost).

I thoroughly recommend his autobiography, and his Desert Island Discs episode is probably the best I’ve heard. He’s a very unusual and honest guy, with a mixed background (he is, for example, a qualified nail technician) and lots of good stories.

I include a snippet from a recent article below – because it made me laugh.


England 29 Wales 18: Triple Crowns don’t mean anything – only Six Nations titles and Grand Slams count

Though you would need a heart of stone not to feel for Scotland, you would also need a similar brain not to understand they were, again, largely the authors of their loss.
