GUEST EDIT: JONATHAN JOSEPH SIX NATIONS SPECIAL


To celebrate and to find out more the players behind the game, we're talking to some of our favourite players. Our second interview comes from English rugby union, Jonathan Joseph. Currently representing England at international level and Bath Rugby in the English Premiership, we talk to Jonathan about how he got into rugby and his guilty pleasures.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN RUGBY?

My dad took me down to the local Rugby club at about nine years old. He always played and loved the sport and wanted to get me involved. I took it to straight away.

HOW WOULD YOU SELL THE SIX NATIONS TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER WATCHED RUGBY?

It's a very competitive competition… the best in the northern hemisphere. A great day out whether you're with your family or friends. Everyone has a great time and the respective crowds mingle in together to create a party atmosphere. It's very cool to be a part of it.

WHAT'S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

A change in wardrobe. I'll throw a lot of my wardrobe out and go all out. No messing.

WHERE DO YOU SPEND YOUR DOWN TIME?

I love my movies... so either cinema or load a film up at home. We train almost non-stop as professional players so lots of quality rest is key!

CAREER PLAN B?

Always get asked this and don't really have an answer. Rugby was always something I wanted to do. I'd imagine I'd try coaching or teaching. Better have a think!

HOW IS 2017 GOING SO FAR FOR YOU?

Pretty well... still early days. England is growing as a team, and hopefully I'm doing the same as a player. We love playing under Eddie Jones. It's hard graft but we have a top time.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

I like many different styles. Whether putting on a suit... which doesn't happen often. Or a more casual long t-shirts with skinny jeans.

WHAT’S TOP OF YOUR ASPINAL WISH LIST?

Can't go wrong with a Mount Street man bag, as long as that tech pack's thrown in!
