Episode 94: San Diego Legion Kicks off our New Season! 

My special Co-host today is Will Hooley: PRO Rugby Player from San Diego Legion and USA Rugby!

Established in 2017, the San Diego Legion is San Diego’s very own professional rugby team and part of Major League Rugby.

On Todays episode we start our show in Studio with Will Hooley and talk about his career, his goals, and all things San Diego Legion.

We even learn some of the terminology of the game, including the scrum, and the maul!

We then head out on the scene to the WNDER Museum for the grand opening and take you inside.

The WNDR museum, which just opened in the gaslamp, is A MULTI-SENSORY SHOWCASE OF ART AND TECHNOLOGY…

About Will Hooley:

William John E. Hooley is a rugby union player who plays fly-half for the San Diego Legion in Major League Rugby and the United States.

Will has been a professional rugby player since 2012 in the UK, playing for Northampton Saints, Exeter Chiefs, Bedford Blues and finally Saracens before making the move to SD Legion. As Will has an American grandmother, it has enabled him to play 20 tests for the USA Eagles.

In his words:

Currently a professional rugby player chasing the egg domestically and internationally in the USA.

My love for writing came at a time of misfortune. After spending a lengthy time out with injury, I realised it was either going to be ‘twiddle my thumbs’ or focus on something else around my rehab.

Sport is an obvious passion of mine, something with so many variations, diversities and, of course, great stories.

History is another passion I have, so integrating and doubling up sporting affairs with the past hopefully provides a great mix.
