Lewis Moody MBE will go down in history as one of England’s finest and most charismatic rugby players. The former England Captain and World Cup Winner was nicknamed Mad Dog for the endless commitment and fearlessness with which he played, he never left anything on the pitch and arguably there has not been a more committed individual in the game.
With 71 caps for his country Moody has a host of accolades to his name including 3 Lions caps, a World Cup Winners medal, two Six Nations titles, seven Premiership triumphs and two Heineken Cup wins; the former England Captain is a true world rugby legend and a gentleman to boot.
In 2013 after Lewis was forced to retire through injury, he launched himself into creating and facilitating short intense rugby courses to help young players to develop their skill set and pitch confidence. Encapsulating the values and all round ethos rugby offers (something Lewis himself was impacted by), in 2015 the courses developed into full time 6th form rugby enrichment programmes, set up within schools.
Outside of Mad Dog, Lewis is working with a number of companies to develop himself further in Business and Sport Leadership consultancy, with an eye to becoming a facilitator in the near future.
In 2013 he launched the Lewis Moody Foundation which supports families affected by serious illness offering family day experiences for those affected, running extreme events and challenges for fundraisers and funding scientific research through the Brain Tumour Charity.
He’s still involved in various voluntary roles including working with the RFU as a member of the EAGR committee, speaking at numerous events and being associated with a number of British brands. However, turning out every Sunday morning as a Bath U11’s rugby coach with his youngest son, is a weekly highlight!
