The Best of JJB – 5 Great Rugby League Interviews

rlw_aug14_200Leeds Rhinos and England Rugby League star Jamie Jones-Buchanan has interviewed many of the leading personalities in the game for Rugby League World over the last five years, all in his own inimitable style.

A host of fellow players, plus referees, TV presenters, club officials and even a couple of Team GB’s London 2012 Olympic medallists have all had the JJB treatment in a series of in-depth, analytical and often highly amusing encounters.

As a much-decorated player with his own unique sporting insight, JJB can and does ask the kind of questions a regular journalist might shy away from and he rarely fails to extract answers worth reading.
