Foden Stateside: A RugbyPass Original Documentary
In 2018 former England full-back Ben Foden shocked the rugby world when he confirmed a switch to the newly formed Rugby United New York and Major League Rugby, America’s emerging professional rugby venture.
It was a maverick move from the 33-year-old international veteran.
Moving to a country and a league where his 34 England caps and tabloid celebrity meant little and where he would need to prove himself all over again.
RugbyPass’ Jim Hamilton goes behind the scenes with Ben as he forges a new life for himself in the Big Apple, away from the tabloid eye and the headlines he left behind in the UK.
Jim finds a man on a mission, trying to find himself in an alien city, plying his trade in a fledgling league and in a RUNY team where his voice resonates like never before.
