We reveal the rugby players with brains to match the brawn.
1. Toby Flood
Flood graduated from Northumbria University in 2007 with a degree in business management and has also undertaken a Graduate Diploma in Law, in preparation for his planned post-rugby career as a lawyer.
2. Alun Wyn Jones
The Wales, Lions and Ospreys man has over 100 tests caps, thanks to his world-class skills. The lock obtained a degree while putting in his classy performances for the Ospreys.
Jones began mixing rugby and text-books part-time at Swansea University, where he gained a law degree in 2010. So can Jones’ skills in the courtroom match his skills at the lineout?
3. Alex Goode
The England and Saracens fullback has a marketing degree from Hertfordshire University
4. Alex Allan
The milestone, which came in June 2018 comes after Alex juggled his studies with rugby commitments and an injury-enforced break.
