Luke Wallace: From Rugby Star To Retirement, Track Cycling, Unwritten Rules & Injuries

Luke Wallace is a former professional rugby player for the Harlequins.

Olly and Davi sit down with Luke to accidentally announce his retirement from professional rugby. During the episode Luke delves into his journey turning professional, public school scholarships, winning the premiere league and playing in front of 80,000 fans, the unwritten rules of rugby, and overcoming injuries with rigorous recovery and concussion protocols.

Luke also talks about his new favourite hobbies which include Jiu-Jitsu and track cycling (Luke's watt bike numbers are UNREAL) along with opening up about what the Harlequins club means to him and offers valuable advice for young athletes and much more...
