    Tim Rodber: "I didn't want to stay in rugby because I realised that I wasn't good enough..."

    The Former flanker and number eight who played with the Northampton Saints, and the British and Irish Lions, joins Lewis and Leon to discuss the highs and lows of his extraordinary career. 
    In this episode, Rodber speaks candidly about his battle with self esteem while playing rugby and confessed that he wanted to leave the game because he doubted his talent in the sport. But it’s his high standards and relentless drive for success that has led him to achieve on the rugby field, in his role as as an army captain and in the business world where he currently resides. 
    Although Rodber admits that he’s not a particularly reflective person when it comes to looking back on his life, he opens up about the emotion behind the iconic photo of him helping Pat Lam lift the Heineken Cup back in 2000, the people he considers his mentors,  what he describes as his tyranny as captain of the Saints and how he struggled to leave the discipline of being a sportsman behind in his retirement.

    Lewis Moody: "I never wanted to leave Leicester - it was my club"

    Lewis Moody: "I never wanted to leave Leicester - it was my club"

    Leon turns the tables on Lewis as he grills his former team mate and 'Mad Dog'on his own life and career in Rugby. 
     
    Lewis joined the Leicester Tigers in in 1996 and at just 18 became the youngest player to play a league game. His career went from strength to strength and he left the sport with a host of accolades to his name and an MBE to boot. 
     
    In this candid conversation he chats to Leon about those eventful early years where he struggled to balance University life with Rugby, his passion for Leicester and reveals the devastation he felt when his contract was terminated in 2010 after 14 years - something he still finds difficult to deal with to this day. 
     
    They talk about the moment Martin Johnson asked him to be captain of the England team, while stood in his back garden. The numerous severe injuries that plagued his career and caused him to miss the 2007 Six Nations Championship, and his silent battle with Ulcerative Colitis; which he hid from doctors, coaches, teammates and friends. 
     
    Well known for his all or nothing style on the field, this approach has not come without some trouble attached, and Lewis is open and honest about that infamous red card he received in 2005 after being the first England player to be sent off at Twickenham for fighting with fellow Leicester teammate Alex Tuilagi.

    Danny Grewcock MBE: "Sometimes I got it wrong and got carded, but I was playing within the rules of the time.."

    Former Coventry, Saracens and Bath player, Danny Grewcock MBE, is one of the most revered players of his generation. Now working in a role as High Performance Rugby Manager as Clifton College, Grewy shares the skills and knowledge that he has learned about the game throughout his stellar career onto to younger generations. 
    After starting his career by moving into the professional ranks in 1996 - 1997 in his home city of Coventry, Grewy stacked up impressive career that culminated in him clocking up over 200 appearances for Bath during his 10-year stint at the club before retiring in 2011.  
    Known as “The Enforcer” for his all or nothing playing style on the field, Grewy reflects on his playing days and reputation, that broken hand injury that saw him replaced by Simon Shaw at the 2003 World Cup, what he misses the most about the game since retiring and the passion he has for helping shape and inspire the next generation of players.

    David Richmond CBE: "After trauma it's the human relationships that heal you..."

    Leon and Lewis jump on the phone to recap after England’s defeat in the World Cup final at the weekend and share their thoughts on what might have gone wrong for the team. They also discuss the hot topic of why the England players were within their right to remove their runners-up medals in the aftermath of the game and their hopes that the England team can see all that they have achieved once the dust has settled. 
     
    This week’s interview is with Colonel David Richmond CBE, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, who is the highest ranked officer to have been shot at and seriously wounded in 2008 during the Afghanistan conflict. 
     
    He underwent four years of reconstruction surgery and rehabilitation and was medically discharged from the Armed Forces in April 2012. During this time he began working for Help for Heroes and went on to become their Recovery Director, helping thousands upon thousands of injured and sick servicemen, veterans and families.
     
    In this candid conversation, David talks us through the moment he was struck in battle, the physical and mental challenges he faced and the dramatic changes he had to adapt to in both his personal and professional life. 
     
    A lifelong rugby fan - and Bath supporter - David explains how close the links between military and athletic mindsets are and how his experience has helped him with his work at Switch The Play, helping athletes transition out of sport.
