Thread on episode 87: Stephen Ferris: Episode 334

Discuss this episode of An Irishman Abroad

Feb 9, 2020 1h 19m

This week, Irish and Ulster Rugby legend, Stephen Ferris, joined Jarlath for a rare conversation about his life and career both on and off the pitch.   With the honesty that he is well known for, Stephen speaks about why he came home a hero from the disappointing 2007 Rugby World Cup (32:00), his less-than-desirable approach to athletics as a youngster (17:00), his experiences of 'lick-arse' team mates (1:09:00) and the cliques within the Irish Rugby team that made him feel awkward and excluded on day one (36:00).   There’s a fascinating discussion on the team building methods of Ulster Rugby (45:00) and how he never thought that he would become a professional rugby player (30:00). Opinions on Joe Schmidt's 'control freak' label (1:05:00), his passionate defence of Simon Zebo's talent (1:00:00) and much more, this is a truly insightful chat with one of Ireland's finest ever rugby talents.   To hear Stephen's Six Nations predictions, thoughts on the Saracens corruption, why he doesn't regret buying cars for the same value as his salary, Jarlath's quick-fire round and much more, become a patron of An Irishman Abroad for just the price of a pint www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad.   You can also gain access to the entire Irishman Abroad archive of episodes through our iPhone and Android Apps.
