Brian Moore’s books are great rugby reads.

The Odessa File or many other Frederick Forsyth novels for non-rugby or the Robert Galbraith novels.

The previously mentioned Sevens Heaven by Ben Ryan is very good! Also Doddie Weir's autobiography is a great and moving read with his current struggle with MND.

Thank you John, I can highly recommend this cricket book but must warn that a box of tissues may be needed when reading.

If you enjoy cricket books then Fibber in the heat by Miles Jupp is a very good read.
