Will Greenwood, MBE, is an ex-England rugby player, who enjoyed a wide spectrum of adulation, playing the position of Centre so comprehensively.
Enjoying a career that spanned 11 years, Will represented both Harlequins and Leicester Tigers, two highly respected names at club level. He also featured at international level for England, compiling 55 caps and proudly played a part in the historic 2003 World Cup victory over Australia. In addition, Greenwood also played for the British & Irish Lions during multiple tours, displaying no reluctance to perform on the grandest stage.
Since retirement Will has gone on to establish himself as a renowned analyst for Sky Sports and The Telegraph. Will is also a successful businessman, having set up Legend Holidays & Events, a company providing family holiday experiences, corporate events and the Sports Fest family sporting festival. His transition into the world of business was undoubtedly aided by his proficiency as an academic. Prior to the commencement of his playing career, Will impressively graduated at Durham University, earning a degree in economics.
Aside from his sporting and business ventures, Will is a keen charity supporter, particularly of organisations that address premature birth and child bereavement. His passion for the cause is genuinely heartfelt, having tragically lost a son, Freddie, shortly after birth in 2002. A patron of Child Bereavement UK, Will also remarkably walked to the North Pole in 2018, in memory of his son Freddie and in the process, raised an astonishing £750,000 for Borne’s Research.
