Bath Rugby centre, Ben Williams, recently took time out from his busy rugby schedule to experience life working at London based sports events agency, Threshold Sports.
The 25-year-old who is currently out injured with a shoulder issue, got in touch with his RPA Player Development Manager, Budge Pountney, to organise the three day work experience with the intention of planning for life after rugby.
“I’ve had a really frustrating run of shoulder injuries over the last few years, and Budge has been fantastic and supported me throughout the difficult process of going in and out of surgery.
“Thanks to his support, he worked with me to organise this experience at Threshold Sports, going on the front foot and getting in contact with the guys here, who were more than happy to invite me in for a few days.
“Obviously it’s very different to what I’m used to, but it’s been very enjoyable and the guys have been great and really welcomed me with open arms.
