"I learnt some valuable lessons at the Reds. Like to be hard on your teammates, but also hard on yourself. Leading by the way you did things is the most important thing you can do, people have to watch what you do and learn from that"
My special guest is Nathan Sharpe. Nathan is a Wallabies legend having 116 caps to his name between 2002 and 2012. After debuting and playing 70 games for the Queensland Reds, he became the inaugural captain for the Western Force where he played 92 games. He has made an impressive transition away from the game with various entrepreneurial ventures while also working in the media.
You will learn plenty from Nathan Sharpe in episode 16 of the Talking with TK Podcast.
