LIST: Rugby players who starred in academy football

Some rugby stars started off playing football…

Luckily they saw the light.

1. Danny Care – Sheffield Wednesday

At age 11 he was invited to join the Academy at Sheffield Wednesday Football Club which meant giving up club rugby although he was able to continue playing the game at Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley.

Here he is with now Premier League and England international Jamie Vardy back in the day.
