‘HIGGY’, the autobiography by Standard sports columnist Alastair Hignell, has been named Rugby Book of the Year at the British Sports Book Awards.

As his fans might expect, it is a thoroughly engaging read about his sporting career, time behind the microphone as a commentator and his battle with MS.

Hignell’s book now goes through for consideration as Sports Book of the Year – and that is where you can help.

The winner is decided by an online public vote at www.britishsports bookawards.co.uk. So get on your computer and vote for Higgy!
