A 17-year career saw James win 77 England caps and play for the British Lions and Wasps, mixing supreme professionalism with a fantastic sense of fun. From pitch to pub it provided him with enough anecdotes to fill a book. The title of his autobiography What a Flanker gives a clue that James doesn’t take himself too seriously. Ruthlessly honest and funny his tales expose rugby in all its excesses, controversy and brilliantly entertaining bad behaviour.
Ticket price includes the book What a Flanker (RRP £20) – collection from the Bell Bookshop or postage fees apply.
