DJ Forbes is a rugby sevens legend playing in 89 World Series tournaments, 512 World Series games, scoring 153 tries.
He was on the winning side in 26 tournaments and notched up six World Series victories. He also captained New Zealand to gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and World Rugby Sevens World Cup in 2013 and was named International Sevens Player of the Year in 2008 and Sevens Player of the Year at the New Zealand Rugby Awards in 2007, 2008 and 2014.
Off the field, he survived 11 years of brutal training sessions that made the games feel easy and established a work ethic that he still needs to fuel today as he passes on valuable knowledge to the next crop of elite athletes with the New Zealand Olympic Committee.
In this episode, we talk about pranks on tour, culture, identity and religion, his eternal search for the world’s best donut, dumplings, pimped-out scooters and where his huge traps come from.
