Moore: I hope Eddie knew that I loved him


Brian Moore today pays tribute to Eddie Butler, the “voice of rugby”, who died this week aged 65. The former England hooker and Daily Telegraph columnist, who shared a commentary box with Butler for two decades, says he thought about writing a poem in the broadcaste­r’s honour, “but immediatel­y thought – what is the point in trying to out word a wordsmith?” Moore writes: “It is never the wrong time to say that you love somebody; I just hope he knew.” Sport, page 1
