Alex Goode is one of
the most versatile rugby players in the club's back division and
had developed into a star for Saracens playing over 330 games. On
top of an impressive club career, Alex has also enjoyed a highly
successful international career. Most recently, he has been a key
member of the Saracens squad that secured second place in the Aviva
and Gallagher Premiership. He was also been named the European
Player of the Year by EPCR in January 2019.
Whilst his passion for
rugby remains undimmed, he's still demonstrating his leadership
qualities by captaining Saracens and his versatility by playing
both flyhalf and fullback. By the age of 34, his thoughts turn to
what life after rugby could look like.
conversation at Alex's home in North London, with many dashes
tucked under his arm instead of a rugby ball, we talk about how
your passion is the fundamental baseline to being successful, how
to work hard to get on top of your game, life after rugby and his
biggest fear and how to deal with anxiety, stress and putting
pressure on oneself.
