Post Lee Byrne due to release autobiography
It is called The Byrne Identity. Most notably, he claims to have had a very poor relationship with Rob Howley. Here are some excerpts:

This is Mr Byrne who professed to liking to *tank* off the night before the game?

Must admit I had forgotten he even existed; so I hope the print run reflects my disinterest in buying a copy !!

Howler comes across as a bit of a tw@t, Wales do seem to just dump players when their faces no longer fit, I would like to think players would get treated better than that.

Lee was injured a few times, most notably on a Lions Tour.

Always suspected Byrne had an eye on celebrity. Remember the advert he made, posing by the swimming pool; 'Hey, are you poor? Send us your gold."
Good player on his day, but not one of my favourite people.

I guess you hate swimming pools, gold and posing. So he was never going to win you over? :D
