Brian Moore: Rugby Night
With Mark Evans and Ben Ryan
Thursday 10th October 2019, 8.30-9.30pm
Baillie Gifford Big Tent
Celebrate the 2019 World Cup at our legendary Rugby Night.
Brian Moore will be joined by Mark Evans and Ben Ryan for an evening of laughter, chat and informative discussion.
Ben Ryan – a local boy who attended Wimbledon College – became the coach of the Olympic-winning Fiji team. His book Sevens Heaven, winner of the 2019 Telegraph Sports Book of the Year Award, tells the extraordinary and personal tale of his journey to the remote Pacific islands. Ben had to win over the hearts and minds of the players before coaching them for gold in Rio 2016.
Mark Evans is the former Director of Rugby at Harlequins, Saracens and Australian side Melbourne Storm. He is also leading the Cornwall stadium construction project. Mark will be discussing his new book Unholy Union: When Rugby Collided with the Modern World.
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
