Lauren Price MBE

Kickboxing, Football, Boxing. Olympics Gold, World Titles and full senior caps. Despite a tough start to life, Lauren has gone on to be an unbelievable multi disciplined athlete. Currently 6 & 0 as a pro boxer after winning Gold at Tokyo2020, she has her sights set on the world belts this year. I loved this conversation, Lauren’s attitude to life, and the fact she is so humble and down to earth despite being a killer in the ring!

Becky Adlington OBE

This was an emotional rollercoaster. We spoke about everything, from growing up swimming, to winning Olympic Gold. Resilience in spades. From fitting in (or not) at school, to years of online hate and trolls due to her looks. Miscarriage and dealing with loss, to being the best version of herself she can be. What a great human being, who is continuing to inspire the next generation of swimmers and her own family 🙌🏽

Dave Attwood

Philosophical in his outlook and speaks a lot of sense. Has thrown men about on the pitch for years, playing for Bristol, Gloucester, Bath, Toulon and England. A great career on it, genuine highs and lows both on and off the field, and carving a new direction off it with Farleigh Performance and Apero

Ben O’Keeffe

We sat down on the eve of the 6 Nations, 48 hours before he reffed Wales vs Scotland in Cardiff. I Could have chatted for hours. So open about the game from his pov, with real insights as to what referee’s go through week to week. Immense highs and lows. Social Media abuse. Respect from the players and coaches, and a desire to be the best he can be. Great speaker, articulate with some good banter too.

Rachael Burford

What a player. What a person. 84 England Caps, and in her final season as a professional rugby player, still owning the 12 shirt at Harlequins – But, it’s equally as impressive the career and opportunities Rachael is forging off the field too. Making an impact in genuinely growing the game, helping the next generation of girls, and spilling all on her ‘Shut Up Juice’ 👀

Simon Grayson

He’s managed Blackpool twice, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, Preston NE, Sunderland, Bradford, Fleetwood Town and just come back from a few years in India. Over 500 games as a professional player. He has forgotten more then I will ever know about being a quality Football Manager. He gives insight in to what it is really like to manage a club, players, transfers, CEO’s, agents and the media, all with a smile on his face!

Neville Southall

Fortunate enough to grab a few hours with a genuine football legend, who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. We cover everything from footy, goalkeepers, playing the modern way, so society, social media and a bit of politics 🤣 What a top bloke, I could have sat with him for hours and chatted about everything football nostalgia and how the game is played today.

Tom Johnson

We could have sat for hours putting the world to rights around a load of subjects. It was great to get an understanding on Tom’s journey, his mindset, and how he approaches life’s challenges. Plenty of highs but also some serious lows too which he wasn’t afraid to touch on. Top player and a better bloke!

Graham Coughlan

Fortunate to catch Graham leading into the xmas period where Newport County play Wrexham and Forest Green Rovers. I absolutely loved him, and what they’re trying to do at Newport, built from graft, grit and resilience. I didn’t know Graham from before, but remember him as an ever present for Plymouth Argyle as I was growing up. Top player, evolving manager and a better bloke.

Josh Pask

I first saw Josh on TikTok, talking about his business journey with Pask Removals, and how it was born from moving clubs himself. West Ham, Coventry, Newport County and now with TNS. Josh is combining pro footy and a business, with a family too. I loved his outlook and the reality of not chasing the football leagues in order for his business and family to flourish. I can imagine most won’t think like him, but he will have something to fall back on that most players won’t.

Calvin Nap – Brain Cancer at 30

This one felt personal having known Calvin since he was a teenager. Having brain cancer at 30, an operation to remove 95% of it, and then needing to raise over £200,000 for a new treatment in the next year for the remaining 5%. It has been a whirlwind for him and it really does put things in to perspective in life. Calvin is genuinely inspirational.

Mark O’Brien

Newport County, Derby County, Luton Town and more. Open heart surgery at 16 and 27 years old. Told you only have a certain amount of time to live. Told you won’t make it in professional football. Playing over 200 pro games. This is part one of a class conversation with Mark O’Brien, 3 years after retirement, and 13 years after making his debut for Derby County at 16.

Joey Carbery

He’s had some serious highs and frustrating lows during his career so far, but I love his outlook on life and his approach to Rugby. I have no doubt, that at 28 years old, Joey still has his best years ahead of him in Red and in Green. He’s a Rolls Royce of a player on his day, and hopefully he can get a run of games when back from Injury.

@RugbyWithAmy – Amy Humphries

A take on the Men’s RWC from a content creators pov. Amy works for Canterbury and also creates for other brands too, bringing a fresh voice and energy to both the Men’s and Women’s game. We caught up ahead of the RWC 1/4’s, got some predictions down, but also chatted about Amy’s journey into the rugby world, and what it’s really like to be a female in what is still a men’s dominated world.
