NEWS: Exclusive – John Kear set to release book in 2012

Ex-England coach John Kear looks set to be one of the next rugby league personalities to release his autobiography, Rugby League Books can reveal.

(UPDATE: Coaching Is Chaos is now available by clicking here.)

The Batley boss has been working with Yorkshire Evening Post writer Peter Smith over the last six weeks.

The pair have already produced 50,000 words for the as yet untitled book, and discussions are believed to be underway with a major rugby league publisher.

Smith told Rugby League Books: “We started work on it after John left Wakefield and we’ve got a lot done recently.

“We’re hoping it will be published in 2012 – possibly around Christmas time, but maybe before then.”

Smith’s previous books include two of the biggest selling rugby league titles in recent memory, Barrie McDermott’s Made For Rugby and Keith Senior’s The Bald Truth.

Kear has plenty to reflect on, including two Challenge Cup victories, England’s 2000 World Cup campaign and a dramatic spell at Wakefield.

Smith added: “John’s described the highs and lows of his career as well as his thoughts on the game and the people he’s worked with over the years.”
