The Wit and Wisdom of Brian Moore

Download: Audio

Editor's note: This podcast contains explicit language.

Speaker(s): Brian Moore

Recorded on 15 November 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

Former England rugby player turned journalist and media commentator gives his forthright views on a whole range of topics from the failings of the England football team to the rights and wrongs of Twitter. Moore speaks out on corruption in cricket, the downward spiral of boxing, the state of British tennis, the politicization of the Ryder Cup and of course, the world of rugby.

Brian will be signing copies of his book More Thoughts of Chairman Moore after the talk.

Brian Moore won 64 caps for the England rugby team between 1987 and 1995, played in three Rugby World Cups and won the Grand Slam in 1991, 1992 and 1995. Originally a qualified solicitor, he writes a regular column for the Daily Telegraph and is a co-commentator for international rugby matches on BBC, and will cover the 2011 Rugby World Cup for TalkSport. His double award-winning autobiography, Beware of the Dog, was released in 2010, and was followed by The Thoughts of Chairman Moore, Vol.1, published last Christmas.
