Sam Warburton

Sam Warburton is acknowledged as one of the best open-side flankers in the world. He represented Wales at all levels, making his debut on the senior Wales rugby team against the USA in 2009. He captained Wales for the first time in June 2011 at the age of 22 years and 242 days, becoming the second youngest captain ever to skipper Wales. He led his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2011 and to a triumphant Grand Slam in the Six Nations in 2012.
