Flying winger Ugo Monye was never one to look back as a player – the defenders he regularly left for dead were normally too far in the distance to be seen even if he tried.
However, in his new role as presenter of The Wrap, World Rugby’s irreverent new YouTube show, the speedster turned top TV pundit has turned into a master of rugby reviews.
In the latest episode, Monye conducts a whistle-stop tour of the global news, including footage of the main talking points from the weekend, from the bizarre ending of the Exeter Chiefs v Northampton game to a five-try hero in Japan.
Dan Carter, the three-time World Rugby Player of the Year, has announced he’s putting himself out to pasture and the great and the good of the sporting world, including Super Bowl winner, Tom Brady, share their tributes for the man known universally as ‘The Goat’.
While Dan, the main man, has decided to call time on his stellar career, another Rugby World Cup winner, Siya Kolisi, is getting ready to swim in new waters, and PRO14 rugby could be set for previously uncharted territory … in Spain, where a USA sevens star suffered heartache this weekend.
Elsewhere, Dr Jamie Roberts gives his forensic insight into the special rivalry between Wales and England, while Monye reveals who’s the subject of his latest man/woman crush, and much, much more.
