Sunday interview: sports agent and former rugby star Niall Woods

Niall Woods belonged to the first generation of professional-era Rugby Union players and signed for London Irish. An injury cut short his playing career and he returned home to head what is now Rugby Players Ireland. Today Woods has his own agency, Navy Blue, with the likes of rugby‘s Garry Ringrose and Andrew Conway on its books
