Nation England
Born Birmingham, January 1, 1962
Position Hooker
Internationals 64 caps between 1987 and 1995
Inducted England v France (February 15, 2003)

Won three Grand Slams with England

The following article has been adapted from the original by Dai Llewellyn, which focused on two players. It has been changed to highlight only the selected inductee’s information.

Brian Moore is England’s most capped hooker.

His 64 international appearances embraced no fewer than 10 confrontations with the French. Moore used to make a point of getting into their faces, knowing that if they lost their temper, they would inevitably lose control of the game. This the French frequently did, most famously in 1992 when England were well along the path to winning their second Grand Slam.

In all Moore participated in all three of England’s Grand Slam successes in the 1990s, retiring after the 1995 Rugby World Cup, the year of the third Slam.
