Darrell Goulding discusses what he is doing now after departing Wigan Warriors during the off-season
and live on Freeview channel 276
The retired centre admits it was a good time for him to take a step back from rugby league in order to enjoy some more time with his family.
Despite having a new focus away from the sport, he hasn’t completely turned his back on it, as he now uses his experience to help others currently in the game.
“I’m in a business that deals with refurbishing watches, but I’m also a player agent, so I still have some involvement with rugby,” he said.
“During my whole time in rugby, I was dealing with agents and contracts.
“I had few people approaching me when I left Wigan, and it is something I’ve always thought about.
“If I can help the young lads then it’s good.
“The big bonus is you’ve been through a lot of the situations and you know what to expect.
“I’m someone who can hopefully help players in certain situations to help them go onto good careers because I know what it was like.
“Rugby is great to be involved in, but if I’m honest, it’s a nice time for me to step back.
“I’ve got a young family and I’ve got four holidays booked in the next few months.
“It’s probably the first time in my life that I can do some of those things, so I’m enjoying it.
“I don’t have to wait until October to go away.”
