5. Rory Best
Another Irish rugby player with a background in farming, the Ulsterman got seriously involved in his family’s beef farm back in 2009 when he injured his neck. He told Newstalk during an interview:
“Farming is a nice release. When I come home for training I can go out and look around at the cattle, do bits and pieces and takes my mind off rugby for a bit which has kept me mentally fresher when I’m playing.”
6. Dave/Rob Kearney
Two for the price of one. When Rob and Dave aren’t busy playing rugby or being devilishly handsome, they’re working at home on their family’s dairy farm. Just when you thought they couldn’t be any more perfect.
