This year we are excited to be welcoming an outstanding England Rugby International, Brian Moore. With 64 England caps and five test appearances for the British & Irish Lions, Brian is one of the world’s most capped hookers. On his first tour with the Lions in Australia in 1989, he played in all three tests, and in New Zealand in 1993 he played in the last two tests.

Known world-wide as ‘Pitbull’, Brian was always an aggressive character and a fierce competitor, and was an inspirational leader of the England pack.

He played for Nottingham and Harlequins when is work as a lawyer, brought him to London. Since then, Brian has remained an outspoken personality with strong view about the modern game. He has been part of the BBC 6 Nations commentary team for the past 5 years and has a regular sports column in the Daily Telegraph. He has published an edgy and hard hitting memoir called “Beware of the Dog”.

His talk is sure to be lively, contentious, hilarious and entertaining.
