RL Legends/Greats who HAVEN'T released an Autobiography

26 posts in this topic

Just reading Robbie Pauls autobiography (not saying he is a legend or great, but was wondering if Shaun Edwards has ever released a biography? Who else out of the masterclass fraternity have not yet released one?

if Geoff Fletcher would release one on his many years at Huyton/Runcorn i reckon it would be a cracking read, i've heard a few stories when ex players have gathered( sadly generally at funerals)that were hilarious

Is there one by Neil Fox, Lewis Jones, Dessie Drummond, Derek Turner, John Whiteley, Lee Crooks?  Is there one by Offiah?

Offiah has released two.

I thought so but wasn't sure. Stanley Gene's is still one of the better books I've read.

There are some great ones to be fair but some real "pot boilers".  Some of the better ones relate to players who perhaps wouldn't be regarded as legends or superstars - often their stories are very interesting.

The one I'm waiting for is Brian Noble's - if he dares to tell the truth about those final years at the Bulls and the move to Wigan! He's a very media savvy guy though, so I guess we'd only get the U certificate bits... :sclerosis:
