    We don’t normally focus on players so much as those who enable them to be brilliant but when you are out at the High Performance Centre and Hugo is there well it would be rude not to.


    The Business side comes when we are talking about the Energia campaign for which he is an enthusiastic ambassador but first, well we had to ask how he is ahead of the big games to come.
