VIEW FROM THE MOON... RUGBY, BUSI­NESS, PANTO AND ODD SOCKS!

Llanelli Star - - RUGBY -

BY any stan­dards, Ru­pert Moon has lived a pretty re­mark­able life.

Born and raised in the West Mid­lands, he be­came a favourite adopted rugby son of Wales, proudly wear­ing the three feath­ers on his chest 24 times.

Since hang­ing up his boots, the for­mer scrum-half has worked on the com­mer­cial side for the Welsh Rugby Union and the Scar­lets, as well as spear­head­ing the game in North Wales.

Away from rugby, he’s fea­tured ex­ten­sively on TV and ra­dio, while he’s re­cently tried his hand at panto as the Baron in Owen Money’s But­tons Un­done.

Al­ways a busy man, he’s on the board of a tech­nol­ogy com­pany, a trus­tee of the Welsh Rugby Char­i­ta­ble Trust and a pa­tron of Ten­ovus, among other roles.

With such a var­ied ca­reer on and off the field, where do you be­gin?
