One Game at a Time – Episode 10

Rugby World Magazine's 'One Game at a Time' – Ben Alexander Rugby World Magazine's One Game at a Time

As the most capped Brumbie in Super Rugby, and having spent 72 games in the front row for the Wallabies, Ben Alexander knows his rugby. In this episode of 'One Game at a Time' from Rugby World Magazine, Ben talks to Sam Roberts about life in the front row, starting his career in England's second tier with Dan Cole, playing against the Springboks, losing against the British and Irish Lions and even, taking on a completely different trio every day. It's a wonderful insight into a fascinating rugby journey and his outlook on life and rugby can only make you smile.At one point in the interview, we discuss the tragic suicide of Dan Vickerman, one of Ben's former Wallaby teammates. It's a tough but important listen and goes to show how important it is to talk to and look after each other. If you are affected by anything you hear in the podcast, please do speak to someone.
