When Charlie Higgins of Leinster Rugby introduces you to a former Wallaby who had to retire due to a broken neck in a World Cup semi final who now owns a company specialising in analytics, it was an easy decision to try get him on the podcast. Ben is an extremely interesting guy in an incredibly difficult, polarising industry. But this episode offers something completely different and comes at an angle that many won't have any known existed. I hope it stirs up as many thoughts and wonderings as it did with me. Enjoy!
