5 rugby legends who had unexpected jobs after retiring

Reports are suggesting former England fullback Mike Brown could hang up his boots after departing Newcastle Falcons after just one season at Kingston Park.

The 36-year-old left Harlequins in April 2021 after 16 years at the club and moved to the North East on a one year deal with an option of another year.

Brown started to prepare for life after rugby in late 2021 when he joined a player management division for the private platform Premier Sports Network.

The 36-year-old has been joined in the new venture by former Quins teammate and Argentina scrum-half Martín Landajo.

Brown currently acts as a strategic advisor for PSN Athlete Management because RFU rules prevent him from working as an agent while he is still a registered player.

Despite interest from Ealing, the fullback could now hang up his boots to become an agent full time.


LIST: 5 rugby legends who had unexpected jobs after retiring

There are some rugby stars who took up some unexpected jobs after they hung up their boots and retired. Here are five of them.

5. Richie McCaw – Helicopter pilot

It was revealed at his retirement announcement in 2015 that McCaw would work at Christchurch Helicopters, where he is a Director and Shareholder, and was obtaining a commercial helicopter licence.

McCaw has since obtained said licence and has continued working as a helicopter pilot. He flew several rescue and reconnaissance missions following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake that struck the South Island.

He also performed milk drops around rural areas of New Zealand while having an endorsement with Fonterra, in which his sister and her husband are dairy farmers.
