• Question: Dear Alan, I was curious to ask this question and I was wondering as you wanted to be a professional rugby player and in your work you try to see how far you can push the human body, is that why you liked rugby as it was more of a rough game ? I would be really grateful if you could email back and I thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter. Yours truley, Lottie Oldham Year 7 Uckfield Community Technology College

      Hi there, That wasn’t the reason i choose rugby. I played that long before i became interested in science and how the body worked and what it was limited by. Rugby was the reason i became interested in it. Hopefully you have something you are interested in and then can make a career from that.
