Breaking the Norm #8 – Guy Thompson

Guy Thompson is a Premiership rugby player with 100 caps for Wasps (and 24 tries), and is soon to be a Leicester Tiger. Guy’s route to the premiership is quite unconventional – he didn’t get there through the typical academy route, instead he played his way up the leagues as you will hear. Guy recently shared Wasps highest honour with James Haskell and Danny Cipriani – the Ivor Montlake award for special services to Wasps Rugby – presented to them by legend Lawrence Dallaglio. In the podcast Guy cites this as one of the highlights of his career as well as receiving man of the match (and scoring a try) away against Toulon.

In this podcast we cover Guy’s background, how he rose to the premiership, what it takes to make a successful sportsperson, and other areas.

As promised in the podcast here is a link to Guy’s very impressive highlights.
