Brian Moore, or “Pitbull” as he came to be known during nearly a decade at the heart of the England rugby team’s pack, established himself as one of the game’s original hard men at a time when rugby was still an amateur sport. Since his retirement, he has earned a reputation as an equally uncompromising commentator, never afraid to tell it as he sees it and lash out at the money men and professionals that have made rugby into such a different beast.

Yet, for all his bullishness on and off the pitch, there also appears a more unconventional, complicated side to the man. A solicitor by trade, Moore’s love of fine wine, career experience as a manicurist, and preference for reading Shakespeare in the dressing room before games, mark him out as anything but the stereotypical rugby player and in Beware of the Dog Moore lays open with astounding frankness the shocking events, both personal and professional, that have gone towards shaping him over the years.

Presenting an unparalleled insight into the mind of one of British rugby’s greatest players and characters, Beware of the Dog is a uniquely engaging and upfront sporting memoir.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sean Beckett | 12/2/2013

    " Clearly written and painfully honest. Worth a read whether you play or are into rugby or not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Wormito | 5/10/2013

    " A pretty good read. For the majority of the book Moore is interesting if hard to warm to (reasons for which are explained in the book). Although he tackles some major issues it only feels like he properly opens up emotionally in the last couple of chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mat Davies | 8/9/2012

    " Brilliant uncompromising autobiography. Moore's unflinching honesty is at parts disarming, refreshing and brutally candid. I used to dislike him intensely on the pitch but his book reveals a complex, conflicted personality that I ended up warming to "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jem Wilton | 1/1/2012

    " Great Rugby book...Moore's upbringing explained his attitude on the pitch... not sure if he's got it together even now... "
