Former Warrington Wolves and St Helens star Paul Sculthorpe has taken on a surprising new role.
Sculthorpe retired back in 2008 as one of the few men to win multiple Man of Steel awards and quickly developed into a rugby league legend both in Super League largely at St Helens as a Grand Final winner in 1999, 2000 and 2002 sadly missing out on the 2006 decider through injury.
Sculthorpe has been involved in a number of areas such as punditry but has now joined Liverpool law firm Mann Roberts solicitors as per Liverpool Business News.
He has joined as brand ambassador and David Mann, founder and managing director of Mann Roberts, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Paul as our first ever Brand Ambassador. Paul is a real leader with wide ranging contacts throughout business and sport. It is an exciting appointment for our business.”
Based at Mann Island, close to Liverpool waterfront, Mann Roberts was launched in March 2022. David Mann is ranked as a ‘Leading Individual’ by the Legal 500 for commercial litigation. He was formerly a partner at Aaron & Partners in Chester.
Paul Sculthorpe himself added: “What David and the team have achieved in a relatively short time frame has been hugely impressive.
“The firm has a well-deserved reputation for getting results while also being great to deal with. We share the same values and I am looking forward to helping the firm achieve its growth ambitions.”
This comes as another legendary player in the shape of Gareth Ellis has also taken on a new role.
He left Hull FC being replaced by now former Halifax Panthers boss Simon Grix as assistant to Tony Smith. Ellis has now joined charity Rugby League Cares which of course has a massive role in the sport.
