Mindset of Champions 3: Leigh Halfpenny Posted over 9 years ago

The third episode of the ‘The Mindset of Champions’ features British Lion, Welsh international, and IRB Player of the Year 2013 nominee Leigh Halfpenny.

Leigh speaks openly about his love of his club and the importance of giving back to the game that has given him so much.

He speaks fondly about his grandfather who was undeniably the biggest influence in his career. And how when he is feeling under pressure in a big game, he mentally takes himself back to his homeground, and how important it is to put your misses “to bed”.

“My grandad said: If you’re not putting the hard work in – there’s always someone who will.”
