VIDEO Punchline Talks: Phil Vickery

Rugby World Cup winner, British & Irish Lion, Gloucester and England captain, Celebrity Masterchef, clothing retailer, restaurant owner - Phil Vickery's CV is long and varied.

So he had plenty to talk about when he took his place in the hot seat for the latest Punchline Talks B!G Interview.

Among the wide range of topics covered with Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen, he discusses the importance of passion to the various parts of his career, from on the field at Kingsholm to the kitchen and behind business success.

He also shares the origins of Raging Bull - the nickname and the business - making the switch from sport to business, how his background has helped and learning lessons from mistakes.

And he talks about negotiating Covid, opening No 3 restaurant during a pandemic, the importance of having the right people in place and taking responsibility for the supply chain.
