About The Author

Karl Dickson
Harlequins scrum half, Daddy blogger

I'm Karl Dickson and I am a professional rugby player at Harlequins, I've been there for six years and in 2012 went on the England tour to South Africa. I met Jocelyn four and a half years ago through current England international Mike brown on a night out in Clapham and recently Jocelyn and I got married. We are expecting non identical twins due in June, these will be our first babies, so apparently we don't do things by half! I have a degree in sports and exercise science from Coventry university where I graduated in 2003, after this I went to Bedford uni to start PGCE, but due to rugby commitments I didn't finish the course and was playing at Bedford Blues, where I played for four years before signing for Harlequins. I love to to travel, but with the Quins' twins imminent arrival my travelling days maybe on hold for a few years. In my spare time I'm a keen golfer and I'm also a coach at Effingham and Leatherhead rugby club. Kdickson9 (twitter and instagram)
