‘Beware of the Dog’ Wins Sportsbook of the Year

Congratulations to Brian Moore on his book ‘Beware of the Dog’ winning the William Hill Sportsbook of the year award.

I was listening live on the radio when the winner was announced today and was amazed to hear that Moore seemed lost for words when given the award, I don’t think I’ve ever known that before.

It obviously meant a lot to him as he was also very emotional, later saying how no rugby victory had ever brought him to tears.

I’ve always found Moore an interesting character. He has an opinion on just about everything and is also very entertaining in his role as summarizer on Rugby Union for the BBC, a role in which it would be fair to say he dosen’t spend too much time sitting on the fence.
