Jarrod Sammut is ready to become a close protection officer for the Vanquish Close Protection company once he hangs up his boots.
It is a company at which former Warrington Wolves and Bradford Bulls star Matty Blythe is Managing Director and who has risen through the ranks, travelled to the Middle East and is now passing on his experiences to others – like Sammut.
The diminutive halfback – who is currently without a club after not being re-signed by the London Broncos – is excited about what the future can hold post-rugby.
“I’ve recently completed a course with the Vanquish training academy in Close Protection & surveillance with a few extra qualifications,” Sammut said.
“I’d spoken within old team mate Matty Blythe at length over the past two or so years about the transition post rugby and the similarities between the two.
“And after a long think, finally I took to furthering my skill set and started my post-rugby career transition.”
The Maltese international also opened up about how his experiences in the 13-a-side game.
“Looking back now I’d say every club I’ve played for has seen a slightly different me and taught me different things about myself or my game.
“But from a professionalism and standards point of view I’d say my time at London in 2017/18 building towards promotion and Wigan in 2019.”
