LTTV dialled into England camp this week, as the national side prepare for the Autumn Nations Cup opener against Georgia at Twickenham, to catch-up with Ben Youngs and chat about his recent milestone on the international stage.
‘Lenny’, as he is affectionately known to all in Leicester, tells us what it means to him – and those who have been on his rugby journey from day one – to make 100 Test appearances for England, as well as what it was like doing so in front of an empty stadium in Rome.
The Tigers, England and British Lions scrum-half also opens up on the highs and lows of social media and shares an insight into dealing with the negative feedback, while appreciating the positive on and offline.
After making his 250th appearance for the club he rose through the ranks of as a youngster from Tigers Academy squad member to the most-capped player in the current squad, Ben also chats about what it’s like to be missing the start of the upcoming campaign and why he is excited about what is to come from the New Look Leicester squad this season.
And, shares his thoughts on what former international team-mate and soon-to-be Tigers team-mate Richard Wigglesworth will bring to the club after it was confirmed recently that he will be joining the Leicester squad.
Watch the full interview from 8.00PM on Wednesday, November 11 on LTTV.
