Matt’s first experience of a top class sporting environment came in 1995 at the age of 18 when he made his debut for Bath Rugby.
His performances for Bath lead to him making his England debut in 1997 at the age of 20. By 23, he became England’s most capped Full Back and played in the 1999 World Cup as well as the Lions tour to Australia in 2001.
Transition from rugby…
Forced to retire through injury in 2007, Matt wanted to find a way to impart his intimate knowledge of world class team environments to others and to help build other high performance units.
Meeting Simon Wilsher, he realised that they could combine their skills and expertise to establish a new way of building high performance teams.
Simon has 30 years of experience in corporate coaching and a natural love of rugby, stemming back to his days growing up in Zimbabwe.
