3 England Rugby Stars Who Know The Game The Best | MN2S Talent

Learn More About These Three England Rugby Stars Who Know What They’re Talking About

With the Six Nations 2017 tournament over our national appetites are collectively whetted once more for rugby, making this the perfect time to book a rugby player as a celebrity speaker for your next event. With millions of people tuning in to watch the tournament it’s a great way to ensure your after dinner speaker is contemporaneous and relevant.

It’s a sport that’s a real crowd-pleaser too, with people of all ages and from all backgrounds getting involved – at least when there’s a major tournament! Check out our pick of three of the most knowledgeable former international players on our books; the perfect experts for a talk about rugby.

Martin Corry

Martin Corry is a verbose and confident speaker who can talk with ease to an audience about his time in the England team as well as with the British and Irish Lions. Born in Birmingham, he first played for the Tunbridge Wells minis team, before joining the first team and eventually moving to Newcastle Gosforth when he moved for university.

After moving to the Leicester Tigers in 1997, Corry proved vital to their success in the period following this, and remained with the team until his retirement in 2009.

It was in 1997 too, that Martin made his debut for the England team in Argentina – and he continued to play for international sides throughout his career. Most notably, he was part of the England team which won the Rugby World Cup in 2003, despite flying home mid tournament for the birth of his first child.
As a captain for both the Leicester Tigers and the England team at various points in his career, Corry can speak with sincerity about the challenges and rewards of leadership, making him an excellent choice of speaker for a business event.

Andy Gomarsall

Andy first hit the spotlight in 1992 when he led the England Schools U18 team to victory in a Grand Slam – the first the team had won in several decades. After that his rise to fame was pretty stratospheric, and his resume reads like a who’s who of the best clubs in the UK.

In total Gomarsall has turned out for his country on 35 occasions, despite seeming to be beset by injury at every turn. Like Martin Corry, he was part of the team which won the 2003 World Cup in Australia, and scored two tries in the pivotal match that the team played against Uruguay.

As a captain and vice captain, as well as someone who has fought his way back from injury on many occasions, Gomarsall has more than demonstrated his own ability to lead by example and has plenty of entertaining anecdotes for any audience.

Brian Moore

Brian Moore is so much more than a rugby player and commentator; as well as his sporting career he has a vibrant career as an author, is a qualified referee and has also found fame and respect for speaking out about his experience of being molested as a child – but it was his rugby career which first put him in the spotlight.

Moore first played for Nottingham and has also played for Harlequins and Richmond, but it was in his international career that he really shone. Playing as a hooker, he earned 64 caps over a period spanning more than a decade.

The breadth of his experience makes Moore a truly fascinating guest for any event, and one your audience is sure to warm to.
