He has appeared regularly on our screens for over 20 years on Rugby Special and Grandstand and spent several years in the 80’s as Rugby Correspondent of the Sunday Times. 

Ian has written over 30 books, including the ghosted autobiographies of Bill Beaumont and Andy Irvine, two books with Gareth Edwards and the family biography of Richard Burton.  To persuade Elizabeth Taylor to write the foreword to this book, he was forced to spend a whole week with Miss Taylor in Hollywood! 

In the summer he masquerades as an expert on horse racing for BBC Radio and over the years he has had numerous tiny shares in a succession of very slow horses lacking any sort of ambition.

Ian is a keen golfer and is delighted to speak at Golf Dinners.
