They’d never even played a team sport before – Tim Abrams – #111

My guest this week is Head Coach of Glasgow’s inclusive rugby team – The Glasgow Raptors – Mr Tim Abrams.

This interview was recorded in May of 2023 and we talked about Tim’s early years in the sport and the behaviour of others that dissuaded him from playing, how he got back into rugby and his passion for coaching, the phenomenal growth of the Raptors under his guidance and the huge number of brand new adult players they are bringing into rugby via summer boot camps for complete beginners.

Tim is a tremendous human and this is one of the most important episodes in the podcast’s history – I hope you enjoy!
