Sketches by Moz
"Sharing a room with two older brothers, I grew up quickly. I watched 18-rated films long before I should have and knew about beautiful women before puberty, thanks to [older brother] Chris’ posters next to his bed. He convinced my mum that they were art, but they were really just pictures of fit girls with their tits out.”
Warrington Wolves veteran Adrian Morley is already an all-time great of rugby league, but he is now likely to enter the pantheon of literary legends with this, his newly released autobiography. In Moz: My Story, the 35-year-old reflects on his colourful life and career with a searing honesty that amuses and charms in equal measure.
Moz is no angel – the book begins with him legging it over garden fences in a bid to flee the fuzz after being caught drink-driving – but then he never claims to be. He simply tells us how it has been for him. And you will not find a more entertaining or poignant read this winter.
