Ok, time to roll out an old story. I coach a junior rugby team down here in South West London. In 2014 my squad made the transition from minis to juniors (at that time it would have been the end of their u12 season) so we took them on a long weekend tour to Toulon to mark their graduation.

Unbeknownst to any of us, the parent who had organised the tour had been emailing Jonny about the possibility of a meet and greet. Long story short we were having a training session on the beach and Jonny rocked up as a complete surprise to all bar one of the touring party.

He was an absolute gent. He ran a 45minute skills session, then did photos and autographs for all 25 odd families, before jumping in the car and heading off to catch a flight. In our little local rugby club it is a legendary piece of history.
