Just wondering if anyone can help with this kind of information.

 

I seem to recall a thread like this many moons ago but havent located it via the search facility.

 

Does anyone have any stats on this ?

 

Many Thanks.

Think Ryan Hall has one in Pure Maths as there was talk of him becoming an accountant when he finished playing. I also recall something about Jamie Peacock gaining a qualification that would allow him to go into the Administration side once he finished.

A lot, probably dozens, do educational courses in things similar to and including Personal Training.

 

Michael Platt recently tweeted a pic of his Level 3 Certificate.

 

In recent times Mark Hilton was well known for his degree in maths, I think.

I remember an article with Scott Naylor saying he left the game with no qualifications or nothing to go into. While this is not a new thing, it's definitely a positive step to get every player something to fall back on.

Good. Keen to hear more. I thought an MBA required a graduate qualification as a pre-requisite.
