In this episode, we go deep with Australian Wallaby utility back Matt Toomua. Toomua is an Australian rugby union player who has played over 35 times for Australia since 2013. He plays for the Melbourne Rebels in Super Rugby and his usual position is at fly-half or 2nd-five. He has previously played for the Brumbies and for Leicester Tigers in England's Premiership Rugby.

In this episode we cover:

  • The business of rugby and Toomua's representation of Union players in the restructuring of Australian Rugby
  • His attention to detail and how these micro-skills amplify your overall in-game performance
  • The selection decisions that drove issues within the Wallabies squad during the previous Rugby World Cup
  • How Super Rugby needs to be restructured so that there is a better offering for fans to get to the game

This episode was special, Matt is insightful, well versed and someone who is thinking about how the micro affects the macro inside and outside of rugby.
