Jordan Conroy

The toughest of upbringings, and not playing rugby until he was 18 – This didn’t stop Jordan working his way to the top, and doing it all with a smile on his face. Tokyo2020, The World 7s series, and a few different TV shows – Everywhere he goes, people are left enjoying!

Deacon Manu

Great career in New Zealand, Wales, and captained Fiji too, although that wasn’t always plain sailing. Tough as teak but always had a smile on his face, and could have ended up a Wales player at one point!

Isa Nacewa

Down south he made a huge impact, but in the North is where he earned hero status – Winning everything with Leinster.

Dean Conway

30 years+ years in professional Cricket, you see one or two things! Part of that historic 2005 Ashes win, and unofficially the go between (Agony Aunt) for players and management.

Ed Jackson

What a guy Ed is. From professional Rugby player to Quadriplegic. From never walking again, to scaling mountains a year later. Resilience in spades. Who knew, wiggling your toe would lead to so many adventures.

DON ARMAND PART 2

Great to talk to Don a second time, this time with a sprinkling of Rugby, his back ground, and what it takes to be in the mind of a professional athlete. I’m not sure he would have made it as a boxer mind 😉

The guy is infectious, and I can’t wait to see where his post rugby career goes, after winning it all in England with Exeter.

DON ARMAND PART 1

9 years a Chief, a few caps, winning the LV, the Premiership, and the European Champions Cup, after a few tussles with a certain team, but we hardly spoke about Rugby in this hour. Social Media, Mental Health, transitioning to business, and being a good bloke in general were all covered instead, as well as his vision for the gaming industry!

OWEN CARRICK

Whilst we normally associate Anorexia and Bulimia with eating disorders in Women, 1 in 3 men have an eating disorder of some type. Owen has lived with this condition for over 6 years now, and got down to only 6 stones, at 5″4 tall. Whilst he’s doing better now, it lead to depression and more.

JARROD EVANS

A top lad with the world at his feet Rugby wise. All the talent in the world, but happens to have been playing at a time when there’s so much competition for the 10 jersey in Wales. You could tell he was frustrated with recent results and the stop start nature of the last few years in general.

LISA MARIE BROWN

We spoke about being a women in predominantly male orientated industries, owning and driving Supercars, competing in Formula Racing for Women, and social media trolls. Her passion is infectious and looking forward to where she takes things!

DR PERRY CROFTS

This is a difficult listen at times, and there’s graphic talk of Suicide.

Perry is a Dr, training to be a GP, and talks of his story living with depression, which spiralled, and working in the NHS too. He’s written a new book ‘The Cost of Caring’ which can be bought on Amazon, at Waterstones etc too.

Lloyd White

Over 200 professional Rugby League games, and lining up against England, New Zealand, and Australia. He’s been there and done it all, with his sights set on more seasons and RLWC 2022 for Jamaica!

Jacques Burger

It was class to catch up with Jacques, and chat about a stellar career, some of the things holding Namibian rugby back despite him playing at 3 RWC’s, and some of the teams and players he loved playing with and against.
