Rugby star becomes full-time farmer

I know absolutely nothing about rugby (seriously, zero) but a colleague of mine assures me that this will be of interest to anyone with a passing interest in the sport.

Leicester Tiger Julian White has called time on a glittering career 20-year rugby career, to focus full time on farming.

I’m sure there are more than a few interchangeable skills between the two careers – sheer strength, tactical thinking, fast reactions and and complete fearlessness to tackle a problem head on.

No doubt he’ll put them all to good use on his 100-acre Lecistershire farm where he keeps a pedigree heard of south Devon cattle and 500 ewes.

Well worth reading the full story on the Beeb
