LIST: Rugby stars who worked jobs you wouldn’t expect

Some rugby stars break the mould and follow unconventional career paths.

Whether before, during or after their careers, the players we worship on a Saturday afternoon’s bread and butter is sometimes earned away from the beautiful game.

So, here’s RUCK’s pick of rugby players that you probably didn’t know could turn their hand to a field that isn’t covered in grass and painted with white lines.

1. Finn Russell (Scotland) – Stonemason

After secondary school, the Scotland star pursued an apprenticeship for three years as a stonemason, in a business owned by a family friend, whilst his rugby developed. Pocketing £300 per week, supplemented by £50 in his hand from Falkirk Rugby Club, Russell is now one of the pre-eminent stand-offs in world rugby and certainly one of the most exciting.
