My special guest is Ben Darwin. Ben is a former professional rugby union player for the Wallabies and ACT Brumbies. His career was cut short by injury in 2003 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. Post footy, Ben transitioned into coaching around the world then became co-founder and general manager of corporate for Gain Line Analytics.
