ROAR Sport Podcast Episode 2: Joe Batley

Welcome to episode two of the ROAR Sport Podcast, with Bristol Bears forward Joe Batley.

In this special 20-minute podcast, we discuss the 22-year-old’s battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which required three months of chemotherapy, and how he is looking forward to establishing himself in the Bristol team now he is in remission.

Batley discusses: his mum noticing a lump on his neck earlier this year (0:14); being told he had cancer (2:00); trying to fight for his place in the Bristol team even as he waited for his diagnosis (3:16); coming to terms with the reality of chemotherapy (4:15); avoiding Dr Google (6:15); the importance of getting outside every day (7:30); changing his perspective on life (8:20); the support he received (9:40); the next steps of his recovery, including radiotherapy (12:55); returning to rugby (13:46) and much more.
