Billy Vunipola
Listen now
Rugby was a passion as well as a coping tool for Billy Vunipola. The Saracens number 8 reveals what it was like growing up in Tonga before moving to Wales, opening up about the culture differences between the two and how he used rugby as a buffer to communicate in a country different to his native tongue. The backrower dives into his on-off professional career and how he works on himself to become a better person. In this pod you will also hear from Castle School PE teacher Lloyd Spacey, Billy's brother Mako and fellow England players Owen Farrell and Marcus Smith.
