Just an update to let you all know that Lee will be signing copies of "Off the Cuff" in Wolfware this coming Saturday between 12.30 and 3.00pm. Details on further book signings to follow. which is good because I have tickets for an event the other side of the pennines at 2.30pm .....

 

You can read a synopsis of "Off the Cuff" on Lee Briers own personal brand new website

If it's as good as it's advance publicity it's gonna be an absolute stonker :thankyou:


I am an oil trader and successful at that but, but marketing, finance, business management, human resources etc are not my strengths

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

I want to know why, one of this countries most gifted players for donkeys years could not get in to the GB team.


Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Similar reasons to Brough in this year's WC IMO.

Briers has written a book? now that really IS scary! Must have been ghost written!

I too wonder why previous GB coaches never chose him. Isn't one of them now his boss?

I hope Lee and his ghostwriter pull no punches when it comes to :

  • His omission from the Great Britain team in the mid noughties, when many - including myself - felt he should have been a driving force for GB before Nobby put on the brakes.
  • And that they do not swerve the pre-Tony Smith allegations that Warrington's drinking team had a rugby problem.

If that's covered it should be a cracking read..

 

I think the second point hints at why he was omitted?


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Bad Hair do and an "unusual face" is my bet.

 

Same for Brough.

I wonder if every chapter will start with either "one night in the pub......" or "one morning while recovering from a hangover....."

I will be very interested in reading about Steve Anderson's period in charge and Cullen's departure.

The Steve Anderson 'era' still gives me sleepless nights. To me this will be the most interesting part of the book.

Can he rock the boat too much with this book whilst he's still playing at Warrington? Will be interesting to see!

Not much boat to rock really, seeing as the Anderson era was 11 years ago and I would think that everyone is in agreement that it was generally an absolute disaster.

Matt "Rocket" Rodwell. *shudders*

 

Briers at full back. Which, I suppose, if you look at how the position has changed over the past decade, you could almost, almost, almost say was ahead of it's time.
