NEIL BACK’S THE DEATH OF RUGBY – AVAILABLE NOW
Ex-Leicester Tigers flanker and 2003 Rugby World Cup winner Neil Back’s second autobiography The Death of Rugby is now available to purchase in stores and online.
Co-authored by Soar Media Director Dean Eldredge, the book arrives 14 years after Neil’s initial autobiography, Size Doesn’t Matter. The Death of Rugby reflects on some of the tough points in Neil’s career, including the disastrous Lions tour of New Zealand in 2005 and his anti-hero role as ‘The Hand of Back’ in Leicester Tiger’s 15-9 European Cup triumph over Munster.
Back describes how he dealt with the transition from professional sportsman to regular family and working life, providing readers with a personal view of his life which hasn’t previously been revealed. With contributions from a range of former England colleagues including Sir Clive Woodward, Martin Johnson, Jonny Wilkinson, Richard Hill and Lawrence Dallaglio, The Death of Rugby gives a new insight into Neil’s highly decorated career.
