#045 - This is the Berkhamsted Spotlight, the podcast showcasing a remarkable community. And today I’m super excited for you to hear this, we’re speaking to James Rodwell, pupil at the school from 1991 to 2002 but after leaving the school he stepped into professional rugby, he’s England’s most capped rugby sevens player, an Olympic silver medalist and he was the Head Coach for the England women’s sevens team.
And now he’s back as a rugby coach at Berkhamsted.
So we’re going to find out his experience being a boy at school, where he went to university but also all about his professional career, travelling the world and I ask him what it’s like to play rugby in front of 85,000 people, that’s a number I can’t quite get my head around.
But we also find out what this means for him now he’s working at school and, more importantly, what that means for the pupils.
Whether or not you’re into rugby, this is a great episode and I know you’re going to love it. So come with me as we speak to professional rugby player, coach and member of staff at Berkhamsted, it’s James Rodwell.
