Off The Cuff: The Lee Briers Story

By  |  0 Comments

People often make assumptions about players from stories they hear. Lee Briers has had many things written and said about his life both on and off the field since he made his debut for Saints in 1997.

Here, in his own words, he charts his meteoric rise from mayhem causing kid on the streets of St Helens around Knowsley Road to lifting the Challenge Cup at Wembley.

He talks about his debut with his boyhood club and how he was shirked in the 1997 Cup Final, his move to Warrington, why he feels he didn’t play for Great Britain, and the charge of the Wolves.

There’s affection too as he remembers the people that have helped him grow up, his brother and family as well as the coaches, the players, the long nights out, the beers and the irrepressible skill that has kept him top of the sport for so long.

Find out why he talks to referees, how he thinks the game should develop and why the future of Rugby League is squarely in the hands of everyone who loves it. It’s a no holds-barred look at a true sporting great.

The book is also available in Kindle format.
