CHILL-OUT SUNDAY THE ELLIS RUGBY – THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY – ENGLAND RUGBY JEREMY GUSCOTT – BOOK REVIEW.

The Ellis Rugby book preview. England Rugby Jeremy Guscott. The Autobiography by Jeremy Guscott and Stephen Jones.

Jeremy Guscott was one of the greats of England Rugby. He mainly played at outside centre for his hometown club Bath, England and the British and Irish Lions. He was born in Bath, Somerset, one of the two sons of hospital porter Henry Guscott. He was originally a bricklayer, briefly drove buses for Badgerline in Bath, then worked for British Gas in a public-relations role before the game turned professional.
During the English off season of 1987, Guscott played for Wollongong Waratahs RFC in Australia in the Illawarra District Rugby Union competition. Later in his career he also secured work as a fashion model. Known for his smooth running style, Guscott was often considered one of the finest ball-players of any rugby age. Former England Coach Clive Woodward called Guscott the “Prince of Centres”, and rugby-writer Stephen Jones (and co-autobiography writer) hails Guscott as part of his ‘dream centre combination’, along with former New Zealand All Black Frank Bunce.
On 17 November 2016, Guscott was inducted to the World Rugby Hall of Fame during the opening ceremonies for the Hall’s first physical location in Rugby, Warwickshire.

Here’s the England Rugby Jeremy Guscott. Autobiography. Book Preview  –

This is the memoir of the English rugby player, Jeremy Guscott. He went from club ranks to become an England player and a British Lion in the same weekend, and here he tells of the tensions of life in Will Carling”s England and at the Rugby World Cup.

Jeremy Guscott burst onto the international Rugby Union platform with a hat-trick on his England debut. In partnership with Will Carling at the centre of Englan’s midfield, he helped his country to three Grand Slams, but will perhaps be best remembered for his drop goal that secured victory for the British Lions on their 1997 tour of South Africa. With a burgeoning career as a TV presenter, not to mention his modelling, Guscott’s appeal goes far beyond the rugby world. This autobiography tells the story not just of the highs, but of the tension of facing a prison sentence during a trial for a road rage attack, for which he was eventually cleared, and reveals what life was like during English rugby’s golden era of the 1990s.

From the early years in Bath  through his rise to the British Lions the story of the “Prince of Centres”
