Sam Warburton


The Gmelin Speaker

Sam Warburton OBE is a former international rugby union player. He first played for the Cardiff Blues and was capped for Wales in 2009 and named as their captain for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

In 2013 he was named the Lions’ captain for the 2013 tour to Australia, making him the youngest player ever to hold that position at the age of 24. He was also captain for the 2017 tour to New Zealand. He holds the record for the most Wales caps as captain. He announced his retirement from rugby union in July 2018 aged 29.

Sam Warburton swapped the pitch for the television studio and punditry and will talk about his sporting life, his reputation for being uncompromising on the pitch and his view of the world of rugby in 2019.
