Waterstones Says

Packed full of outrageous anecdote and hilarious memories, Haskell’s rollicking memoir exposes rugby union in all its excess, controversy and brilliantly entertaining bad behaviour. 

Signed Edition. A standard edition is available here.

'I'd like to be remembered as a player who showed that you can be incredibly professional but also a lot of fun - a bit of a tit in the changing room, but the ultimate competitor on the pitch. That should have been the subtitle of this book, really...'

One of rugby's most ferocious flankers and biggest characters, James Haskell has had an extraordinary, global experience of the game, having played for the Lions, Wasps, England and in both Australia and France. After seventeen years and with 77 international caps under his sizeable belt, he has a shitload to say about rugby life - from pitch to pub and everywhere in between.

In What A Flanker!, Haskell sheds fresh light on the dynamics and the day-to-day of the game. Whether he's recalling the most brutal team socials; dispelling the myths surrounding New Zealand's dominance; introducing his Japanese teammates to manscaping or calling out play-acting in the modern game, no subject is off limits.

Side-splittingly funny and ruthlessly honest, What A Flanker! delves into the touring, drinking, training, eating and sometimes unconscionable antics of the professional rugby player. It's an unforgettable read, even if there are some stories you'd rather forget...

“Amusing take on modern rugby”

As the notes suggest this is funny at the start, but does tail off into more serious stuff quite quickly. Quite a few anecdotes and some serious points about English rugby in general. It's a 3 due to this comment... More
