The latest episode of our Sporting Chapters series features former England centre Will Geenwood.
Greenwood, who is now a rugby pundit with Sky Sports and writes for the Daily Telegraph, won 55 caps for England and was part of their glorious 2003 World Cup winning team.
In a rugby career spanning almost 20 years, Greenwood has achieved just about everything a professional rugby player could ever aspire to, playing an integral role in that World Cup-winning campaign, as well as touring with the British and Irish Lions in 1997 and 2001.
Greenwood has made his name as the face of intelligent and entertaining rugby writing and punditry. From hilarious character sketches of players to technical discussion of scrummaging and World Cup reminiscences, Greenwood delivers unrivalled writing on the game of rugby.
