Wyles nominated for RPA PDP award
Chris Wyles has been nominated for the RPA Personal Development Programme award
The accolade, in association with Clarke Willmott, is given to an individual who has shown outstanding commitment to their off-field development, expanding their knowledge, experience and contacts with a view to their next career.
Former USA flyer Wyles, who recently made his 250th appearance for Saracens, is retiring at the end of the season and will fully focus his time on his Wolfpack bar and lager.
He is shortlisted for the award alongside England Women’s star Heather Fisher and ex-Gloucester flanker Andy Hazell.
Wyles said: “Setting up a business whilst continuing to play rugby has been a tough but rewarding experience.
“Both Al (Hargreaves) and I have relied hugely on the support of others including the RPA and so to be nominated for this award is a special moment.”
