Former international rugby star Lee Byrne answered questions from keen sportsmen and women at Weston College.

Byrne, who won 46 caps for Wales between 2005 and 2011, spoke about his career and was shown around the college’s sports facilities during the visit.

Byrne revealed he left school at a young age as he did not get correct support for his dyslexia, but told students he ‘would have loved to have come to a college like Weston’.

Student Sam Bate, aged 17, said: “It was a different experience to a normal guest lecture, Lee’s a big name in rugby and gave us a great insight into professional sport.”
