Crossing the Line Radio, with athlete transition specialist Rick Cotgreave

Rick Cotgreave

Rupert spoke to athlete transition specialist Rick Cotgreave before the third Ashes Test at the WACA in Perth, where Australia secured a series win. Among many things, Rick reveals that he used to be England captain Joe Root’s school PE teacher. He provides some interesting insights into Root, from his controversial decision to bowl first in the second Test in Adelaide, to where he and England go to from here psychologically. Rick also talks about those in the England team who may be on the brink of retirement after the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne – where Rick hopes to catch up with Root – and the fifth and final Test in Sydney.
