Leon Lloyd

"“Not being involved in that team. And that team camaraderie is the biggest thing that hits you.”"

- Written by Amy Longster

Why are we telling this story?

This research falls under the theme Transition.

Leon found retiring from an illustrious career at two of English Rugby's top teams incredibly difficult. Losing the camaraderie, not knowing what he was truly passionate about and with a damaged body, Leon knew more research was needed in finding out how to successfully transition out of rugby, and sport in general.
