From Newcastle Falcons to Atlanta Falcons, via England Rugby Sevens and New Zealand’s most feared Canterbury Crusaders, Alex Gray has made the leap stateside to the NFL.
1.98m, 105KG, and running the 100m in under 11 seconds, he has all the right credentials to make it stateside, oh and that’s not forgetting that he was England’s Rugby Sevens Player of the year before he made the switch.
