Creator and Author of Out On The Full Rugby.

After years of ardent rugby support Out On The Full blossomed from sending emails to my Father to ensure he was up to speed on the latest news to point that it has reached today with over 30,000 views.

Rugby is my passion, it enables me to meet and interview inspirational people, witness magical moments and share all of this with others.

At the age of 26 with the Rugby World Cup 2015 fast approaching and just a year of formal Out On The Full writing under my belt the world of Premiership and England Rugby remains my oyster!
