BANG AVERAGE CHAT THAT YOU won’t want to END.
I can only see downloads, so if you're going to listen, please can you download the episode. I'll love you forever!
Had a great laugh with Chris, fresh off the back of England RL’s World Cup warm up game on Friday vs Fiji, heading into next week’s RLWC. Huddersfield, Warrington, Leigh, and Great Britain, Chris delves into them all, his career, and his businesses on the side too.
Mike is currently training to ambark on a solo row across the Atlantic. Is it absolutely insane, and we delve in to the why’s and how’s in more detail. This follows a career as a Royal Marines Commando (Going after Saddam, Osama and others), and the Covert Op’s and Human Intelligence & Account Handling
Spoke to Jerry midweek, and then watched Harlequins in a contender for game of the season whilst editing. It was so interesting listening to him talk, whilst watching what he’s paid to do. He talks all things coaching, working with talent, culture in teams, that Munster changing room, playing for Ireland, and the Lions.
It was fascinating to chat about the recent press coverage, his experiences of Racism in Rugby, Rugby in general. and having a laugh with Eddie Jones. We laughed a lot in this episode and spoke in depth about some serious issues too. Top player, better bloke.
Simon Jeffries – SBS
Interesting to hear him talking about mindsets, purpose, and the little things everyone in society can do to help themselves both physically and mentally. I can see why he is so successful with The Natural Edge, but also why he held a successful career in the Marines, Special Forces, and the SBS.
Robin Horsfall – SAS
Robin joined the army at 15, after a tough childhood. He joined the Para-Troopers before his 18th birthday, and passed SAS selection at 22. Northern Ireland, The Iranian Embassy siege, and the Falklands, amongst other tours.
When Katie’s not warming up the crowd at Kasabian gigs, she’s working for Sport Bible at the Women’s Euro’s, warming up the crowd for Wales Footy matches, hosting her own Radio shows, and hosting the Main Stage in Leeds for Reading & Leeds Festival!
Adam Linforth – Budgy Smuggler
Anyone who knows me, knows I love the guys at Budgy’s, but also what the brand stands for, and the fun associated with them. They’re creating a community of like minded people, who want to have great times, and feel good in themselves.
Lauren Webber – The Mum Club
It’s great to see TMC going from strength to strength with 37 franchises and counting, let alone going global! We spoke business, but also being a mum, longing for community when you’ve given birth, absolutely winging it at times, and how its never plain sailing. @themumclub / www.themumclub.com
He’s just hung the boots up after 16 years as a pro, and co-founded Myomaster too, which aims to rival Theragun. He was the first player to win the Premiership, Championship, both European cups, the LV Cup, and the B&I Cup
He’s a down to earth lad – Good to hear about the challenges he faced for both England and Gloucester, and the good times too. He gives some real insight in to what has been a class career, which he’s looking to emulate off the field too.
Mike Ruddock OBE
He delved in to all aspects of his coaching career, the highs and the lows. He’s currently finding the stars of tomorrow for the Ospreys, and I love his outlook on that programme. He’s won a Grand Slam with Wales, and Division 3 West with Mumbles, and seen pretty much everything in between.
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!
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!
Down south he made a huge impact, but in the North is where he earned hero status – Winning everything with Leinster.
