This week’s Rugby World Magazine’s “One Game at a Time” goes back to 2009 and a rare rugby penalty shootout. Jordan Crane played for Leeds, Leicester, Bristol and England in a wonderful 15-year career, which is continuing into coaching down at Bristol. But back in April 2009, in Cardiff, in a European Cup Semi-final, a boyhood dream was realised. Jordan talks to us about his roots in football, playing for Leicester, nerves, scrum caps and how cruel sport can be. It’s a fascinating listen and if you watch along with the youtube clips, the anxiety of the penalty shootout comes flooding back.
