On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Carlos Spencer. 

Carlos is widely regarded as one of the best rugby players of his generation. He played 44 times for the All Blacks, 89 for Auckland, 99 for the Blues where he won two Super Rugby championships, then enjoyed professional stints playing and coaching in England, South Africa and Japan. 
in this episode we talk about what it’s like parenting a potential sports star, his viral trick-shot videos from lockdown, how he caught the eye of Graham Henry, his first impressions of Jonah, the freak injury that cost him a World Cup, how he keeps the rig in such good nick, the strain of being a rugby globetrotter, *that* try against the Crusaders in Christchurch, toffee pops, reno rescues and what's next. 

Carlos was one of rugby’s genuine superstars, but in person is such a humble, down-to-earth Kiwi bloke. He’s lived one hell of a life, with so many incredible stories to tell. This was a really fun one.
