"You had me at hello" might well take on a new meaning for rugby stars as the world's first licensed female rugby agent has entered the business. Working for a legal firm in Leeds, Front Row Legal, Katie Simmonds has set her sights high as she outlined her ambitions in a recent interview with the Yorkshire Post:

“Sportsmen have a lot of spare time on their hands and it’s about maximising their potential. For instance, if a player is blessed with good looks I might encourage them to look into modelling." She continued, “I’d like to develop what I’ve started and I’d love to branch out into football. The perfect scenario would be acting for the next Wayne Rooney,” she laughs. “I want to be at the point where I am acting mainly on behalf of sports clubs and players exclusively – just helping to make dreams happen.”

All sounds a bit like a Miss World speech - and she certainly has a glamorous look - but the ruthless ambition underlying her comments suggests she's ready to shake up the established sports management order. I'm sure there'll be a few players who'll be interested - although the WAGs might take issue!
