Brian Moore, known as pit bull during his time playing rugby for England and the British and Irish Lions, was always a sportsman with a hinterland. Our fascinating chat covers his other careers as a solicitor, wine columnist, TV commentator, manicurist and now trainee psychotherapist, as well as plenty of other things besides, including food, politics, scaffolding, his secret respect for the French and why he can’t stand “Swing low, sweet chariot”.
To read more about Brian, do buy a copy of his autobiography, Beware of the Dog. You can also follow him on X (ex Twitter) @brianmoore666.
