Enfant du Sud-Ouest, Grégory grandit entre la côte Landaise et sa chère Bigorre, dont il est originaire. D'abord excellent joueur de tennis, il abandonne la petite balle jaune à l'adolescence pour suivre ses copains au rugby, du côté du Football Club Lourdais. Tout va alors très vite : il rejoint le centre de formation du Stade Toulousain, remporte les titres Reichel puis Espoir, et intègre par la même occasion le groupe professionnel, devenant Champion d'Europe 2003 ! Impatient, il quitte Toulouse et débarque du côté de la Capitale, dans un Stade Français en pleine période dorée. Pari gagnant, il soulève le Brennus en 2004, à 23 ans. Après 2 saisons du coté de Jean Bouin, il s'engage à Narbonne puis à Brive, connait le chômage, rebondit à Marseille dans un projet articulé autour de la légende Jonah Lomu, puis s'impose à Carcassonne. C'est alors qu'en mai 2011, sa vie bascule : il fait un AVC suite auquel rien ne sera plus jamais comme avant. Passé tout proche de la correctionnelle, Grégory compose alors avec les séquelles de son accident et réussit l'invraisemblable pari de refouler les terrains au bout de seulement 7 mois ! Il choisit par la suite de préparer sa reconversion en conciliant le rugby avec une école de kiné. Véritable globetrotter, Gregory est passé par la côte basque, Monaco, l'ile Maurice et a ouvert son cabinet à la Réunion ! Immense déconneur et très bon vivant, Grégory n'en est pas moins un énorme travailleur. C'est vraiment une personnalité comme on en voit peu. Aussi fou furieux qu'attachant, j'ai passé un magnifique moment en sa compagnie ! Bonne écoute ! ----------------------------- ⚠️ Si ce podcast vous plait, n'hésitez pas à le noter 5/5 sur Apple Podcast, à laisser un commentaire sympa et à le partager autour de vous.

Ric Salizzo is New Zealand sports broadcasting royalty – journalist, television presenter and producer – turned rugby consultant in New York. Ric started his career as a journalist with TVNZ before becoming the All Blacks' first ever media liaison officer in 1992. Prior to that he pioneered sports media coverage producing the behind-the-scenes documentary The Good, the Bad and the Rugby which kickstarted a series of follow ups over the years. After four years inside the All Blacks camp he then created, and hosted the wildly popular Sports Café, a cult hit which ran for 11 years creating some memorable TV moments and turned Marc Ellis and Leigh Hart into household names. He then moved behind the camera as the executive producer of The Crowd Goes Wild, which has been running for 16 years. Now based in New York working in Major League Rugby, Ric shared some of the best bits from his career.

One of the all-time greats, Zinzan Brooke, is on the sofa this week with Alex and Tinds. We get the inside track on Tinds' royal weekend at the Queen's Jubilee celebrations, before diving into the man who's seen it all in a career spanning the amateur and professional eras. He explains how summer touch helped shape the All Blacks stylish rugby in the 80s and talks about what it was like to win the World Cup before reporting back to work as a plumber. Jonah Lomu crops up in conversation (of course he does), so do 40-metre drop goals (of course they do) and then there's that famous Zinzan mullet, a conversation starter if ever there was one.
We have a full house today as Pat, Sam, Sean and Simon discuss The Greatest Game Ever. First, we look at camera views; is South Terrace, East Terrace, or ‘Action Cam' the way to go? Then, we discuss essential house rules for the game. What is acceptable, and what is not? We reminisce about ‘Classic Matches' and the hilarity of ‘Team Rage' and ‘Team Lomu'. An important tier discussion follows; who are teams #2, #3 and #4 after the All Blacks? Everyone loves a good minnow, so we decide to discuss our favourite minnows, and favourite players from these nations – Laksanasompong, anyone? We cap off the podcast with a robust debate about the best kickers outside of ‘McCabe', as well as getting controversial with our lists of overrated and underrated Lomu's players.

On Wednesday morning we announced Jonah Lomu in the number 16 spot of Greatest kiwis of All Time. To celebrate Jonah’s legacy and tell us about the impact he has had, his wife Nadene Lomu joined Tova on Wednesday morning. Many listeners today will have seen Jonah the rugby player but they won’t necessarily know Jonah the man. Nadene told Today FM this morning more about what he was like. "It's now difficult for me to talk, but I'll do the best I can," she said.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Josh is an All Blacks legend who played at two Rugby World Cups across 54 games for the All Blacks and was a cult hero in Dunedin, where he played over 100 games for Otago and the Highlanders. In this episode we talk about surfing with Tom Robinson, destroying his downstairs operation on the Crowd Goes Wild, what it was really like to play with and against Jonah, how he avoided food poisoning at the 95 World Cup, what it was like playing in NZ's first Super Rugby season, why schoolboy rugby is better than All Blacks rugby, how he won consecutive seasons of Celebrity Treasure Island and much, much more. Josh is not your average rugby player. He's a trained physio, he surfs, he paints, he's a reporter for Crowd Goes Wild, he restores Classic Cars, he's a family man, and a deep thinker. There was so much to talk about with Josh – and as he said at the end after nearly two hours – we barely scratched the surface! You'll enjoy this one.

The Great Coaches: Leadership & Life
Our Great Coach on this episode is Sir Gordon Tietjens. Gordon is the former coach of the New Zealand men's national team in rugby sevens; the All Blacks Sevens. He started coaching the team in 1994 and had immediate success winning the Hong Kong 7's. He then went on to win the 7's world series on a record 12 times. Along the way the team also won the world cup in 2001 and 2013, and 4 Commonwealth Games gold medals. He stepped down as the coach in 2016 and took on the head coach of Somoa. He has been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame and in 2013 was knighted for his services to Rugby. Gordon is a coach with a life-long commitment to the service of people development. As the coach of the All Black 7's for 22 years, he helped 47 of his players go on to represent New Zealand Rugby Union. And on that list are some of the all time greats like Jonah Lomu and Christian Cullen. He is fiercely determined and fired by a deep sense confidence that comes from the effort that goes into the preparation and planning of his teams. He also believes in the importance of nutrition, and intense training regimes that are intended to be tougher than anything they would face in an actual match as this prepares the athletes for better decision making when they are in the heat of battle on the field. After interviewing Sir Gordon, I can see why New Zealand is considered one of the most proud sporting nation on the planet. In this discussion some of the key highlights for me were: How he helps people build self-belief by encouraging them to express themselves as individuals and not be afraid of making mistakes. His views on mental toughness and the traffic light system he uses to classify players. The terrific story he shares about Roger Federer crying to illustrate his point that losing although painful, does not necessarily mean failure when you've given it your all. And How the onus is on the coach to select the right people who believe in the teams culture. And the importance of character and coachability in selecting these team members. This was a terrific and intense conversation with a master coach and I hope you enjoy it as much I did.

A British & Irish Lion, international rugby player and producer of some of the most memorable moments in English Rugby. Coming off the back of a Grand Slam win in 1995, in which Tony Underwood and his brother, Rory, scored 7 of the 9 tries their team scored all tournament, England entered the World Cup of that same year full of confidence. The highlight of that campaign for England would be a quarter-final win over Australia – a side who had beaten them in the final four years earlier - with Tony scoring one of the most memorable tries in English rugby history, out-running the reigning world-champions' defence from his own half. Weeks later in the semi-final, Tony Underwood had the job of marking Jonah Lomu. After the 80 minutes, Jonah Lomu had announced himself on the world stage with four devastating tries, while Tony understandably had one of his lowest moments in the game. With New Zealand beating England 45-29, Tony had by his own admission under-performed on a big stage. However, as you will see in the podcast, he is far from someone who lets setbacks define them. Tony focussed on controlling the controllable, and rather than ruminating on past mistakes, he focussed on what constructive actions he could do to ensure he got back to his best. Testament to this was Tony gaining a place on his second Lions tour two years later– one of the most memorable Lions tours of all time – which many will know from the documentary ‘Living With The Lions'. That tour, Tony would get a full Lions cap in the third test, which he refers to as a ‘symbol of resilience'. From one of the lowest points of his career in the semi-final in 1995, to achieving the ultimate honour in British rugby, Tony is proof that resilience and self-belief are some of the key components in maximizing your potential. Since retiring from rugby, Tony has gone on to captain the largest commercial aircraft in the world - navigating an A380 across the globe. More recently though, in his role with Wordplay, Tony is helping organisations and individuals drive performance through better relationships and teamwork. As can be heard in our podcast, he has a set of proven methods to help people achieve their goal, and to help people facing their own Jonah.
It's been called Limerick's greatest half of hurling and it sealed their first Munster three-in-a-row since the 1930s so can anyone now stop them retaining the All Ireland? On this week's Throw-In, Michael Verney was joined by Colm Keys and Brendan Cummins to look back on all the weekend hurling action. Kyle Hayes's goal was reminiscent of New Zealand rugby star Jonah Lomu in his pomp says Keys while Cummins believes that Limerick can be stopped, but only if you bring enough bodies out the field. ‘If you get most of those Limerick players one-on-one, like it was in the second half,' says Cummins. ‘Unless you're an Olympic sprinter with a hurley in your hand, you're going to be in difficulty, so the only way around that is to pull bodies around the middle of the field. Every time they turn they hit into somebody and try to get them to take risks that they wouldn't normally want to take and Tipp did that in the first half but unfortunately in the second half it obviously petered out.' Elsewhere, it was yet another Leinster title for Kilkenny and Brian Cody while Clare's win over Wexford sees Brian Lohan's team hitting their stride as they face Cork next in the qualifiers. For Davy Fitzgerald though, the question is, has he taken this Wexford team as far as he can? In the football, Dublin reached their eleventh Leinster final in a row overcoming Meath by six points but their form so far has been sluggish, and Keys reckons they are beginning to fray at the edges. Are Kerry and other counties sensing an opportunity this year? But the big story was in Monaghan where their two-point win over Armagh in the Ulster semi-final was a bittersweet victory coming less than twenty-four hours after the death of their U20 captain Brendán Óg Duffy.

Alex Mate Tuaoi is a New Zealand born Samoan who was born and raised in Wainuiomata, Wellington NZ and has been passionate about Art since he was a young boy. Alex is a humble man of a few words but is inspired by having the freedom to express himself through art. Alex has showcased his artworks in group exhibitions in Wellington, Sydney and Brisbane but he had his first solo Exhibition in Nov 2019 the theme was titled INSPIRE. Drawing inspiration from amazing people Alex admires ie Tana Umaga, Jonah Lomu and Martin Luther King, it enabled him to believe he could make his childhood dreams come true which was to fill a gallery with his own artworks. There were 16 masterpieces of artwork on display sold via Silent Auction. Alex was blessed to meet Dave Parker when Dave initiated the request to film & document Alex's art journey as he's keen to capture an Artist's story. Alex being a shy guy, therefore it took a while and loads of convincing for Alex's wife Fayth but he finally said yes to the documentary. Today, Alex works on commissioned artworks and is starting to paint and rebuild his artworks for future exhibitions.

GOLD DIGGER: The search for Australian rugby
It's all just a little bit of history re-repeating, or is it? Classic Wallaby statistician and all around oracle Matthew Alvarez joins us for an exclusive interview about how he collects statistics, data and fascinating stories about every Wallaby game and player since the game began. We look at the exhaustive investigative style of research that goes into compiling this information and along the way examine the 1920s Waratahs/Wallabies, the link between Queensland's rise and the Wallaby success of the late 20th century and how important it is for the younger generation to know about the triumphs and legacy of the past.Is there something to learn from history that could help Australian rugby turn itself around? This time we're digging with a professional.
GOLD DIGGER: The search for Australian rugby
Someone call Doc Brown, because we're going back in time to a point when the Wallabies ruled the world, and we're hearing it from the troika of legendary captain John Eales, the highly successful coach Rod Macqueen and the man in charge of the code for over a decade, former Australian Rugby Union CEO John O'Neill.So strap yourself in and take a walk down memory lane as we hear about how the Wallabies dealt with some record losses and a slump in form to beat the All Blacks 3-0 in 1998 and then forge a path to glory at the Rugby World Cup in 1999.
Trimby gets all excited as Daddy Humphs joins us to talk about his current role with Georgia ahead of their game against Ireland on Sunday. We ask him how he developed such a vast variety of skills as a player and reminisce on how Jonah Lomu rained on his parade in Lansdowne road in 2001. There's also a big reveal as Humphs and Trimby disclose which Ulster player caused a management investigation after a “David Humphreys” parody account was created on Twitter.
Sky Sport Presents: Playmakers
Sky Sport's rugby experts, Justin Marshall and Grant Nisbett sit down with Australian legend, David Campese, in Sydney. The outspoken 1991 World Cup winner admires the All Blacks, but thinks the modern game lacks the flair of the 1980s and 90s. The famously tackle-shy wing/fullback also explains why Sean Fitzpatrick laughed at him after bringing down Jonah Lomu in a Bledisloe Cup match near the end of his career.

There’s never been a player like Jonah Lomu - what he could do, the impact he had on the world. What few realised is what he’d come through to get there - and what he was going through even as he appeared to be unstoppable. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Early Edition with Kate Hawkesby
It was an all too familiar sight - the Wallabies imploding in a test at Eden Park - but this time at the hands of an unheralded tormentor in chief.That was the view of Australian media in the immediate aftermath of the All Blacks' crushing 27-7 victory in the second Bledisloe Cup test in Auckland, a week after Dave Rennie's charges came to within a goalpost's width of an historic upset in Wellington.But while Aussie rugby scribes were divided in their reasons for the Wallabies' defeat, tightening the All Black's near two-decade long grip on the Bledisloe Cup, they were unanimous in their praise for rookie winger Caleb Clarke, who was near faultless in his run-on debut.Writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, Tom Decent said comparisons to the late great Jonah Lomu weren't far off the mark."The Dave Rennie era started with optimism rife following last week's draw in Wellington but Sunday's 27-7 loss has rammed home just how hard it is to slay the All Blacks at a venue they have not tasted defeat at since 1994," wrote Decent."If anyone thought Caleb Clarke's 11-minute cameo last week was a fluke, the performance of the All Blacks winger on Sunday was three times as good. His 123 metres from eight carries did not paint the full picture as he bumped off Wallabies defenders like a 16-year-old playing in the under-10s."The inevitable comparisons to Jonah Lomu are absolutely valid after two sensational showings."Caleb Clarke with parents Eroni and Siala after the second Bledisloe Cup test. Photo / PhotosportClarke's performance drew resemblance to those of Dad Eroni in his heyday, according to The Australian's Wayne Smith."Fullback Beauden Barrett, back at the ground where he scored four tries against the Wallabies two years ago, beat tackle after tackle but the alarm bells were really ringing in the Australian side any time Caleb Clarke was in possession."Just like his father, former All Black Eroni Clarke – watching on proudly from the stands – Caleb simply refused to be tackled and even Australia's best first-half defender, Michael Hooper, was struggling to hold him."
On today's show, we launch our new members club ‘Penguin Status' on Patreon. We reminisce about the time Jonah Lomu won the All-Ireland with Clare in 95.

Also, Barry Miyagi provides a hot pubic take on creativity.
All Blacks legend and former Racing 92 star Joe Rokocoko joins us to discuss his playing career and his journey into coaching in Paris.
