Sport Relief runs from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March and when Rob's guest retired from his sport, his opponents probably breathed a sigh of relief. Former England rugby union international hooker Brian Moore won 64 caps for England as well as 5 caps for the British and Irish Lions. Known as the 'Pitbull' for his uncompromising style, he has continued his direct approach with his journalism. Brian is a regular part of the BBC rugby commentary team and has broadcast widely on TV and radio. In 2009 Brian was nominated for the British Press Awards sports journalist of the year and in 2010 he won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award for his autobiography, Beware of the Dog. Away from rugby, Brian is also FSA qualified, an OPI qualified Nail manicurist, a Semi-skilled sheet metal shearer and a qualified lawyer.

Answer: Honegger’s 'Rugby’. A great sports enthusiast, the French-Swiss composer Arthur Honegger adored rugby, and in 1928 he devoted the second of his symphonic movements to a rugby match in sound.
