There are many famous rugby stars who have made surprising career changes. And what this shows is that people’s success often depends on finding the courage to make those major career switches.
1. Phil Vickery – Fashion designer/Chef
Following his retirement in 2010 due to injury, Vickery established his own fashion line named after his moniker. Featuring rugby-inspired tops and T-shirts, shirts, footwear and knitwear, the Raging Bull brand is stocked in 30 House of Fraser stores and 90 independent retailers in the UK.
Vickery, who won Celebrity MasterChef in 2011, has launched his new enterprise No.3 as a collection service after plans to open a restaurant were delayed.
