Clyde Rathbone

“The strangest moment was when the Australian team landed in Durban and we got on a bus and drove down the South Coast where we were doing the preparation for the test and we drove past my high school. I remember sitting on the bus and thinking if someone could go back in time and grab me while I was running around in those fields and say one day you will be driving past on a bus with the Australian team it would have been like saying you’re going to land on Mars, it would have been that absurd”

My special guest is Clyde Rathbone. Clyde is a former Rugby Union player for the ACT Brumbies and represented the Wallabies 26 times. Post retirement Clyde is the co-founder of Karma.Wiki.
