Congratulations to Sam Warburton & Leigh Halfpenny Posted almost 11 years ago

The Rugby Site would like to congratulate Sam Warburton on having been named captain of the British and Irish Lions. We would also like to congratulate Leigh Halfpenny on having been named in Warren Gatland’s squad to take on The Wallabies.

Warburton will be the youngest Lions captain for 58 years and is relishing the challenge, “I can’t wait to get on with it, it’s a dream come true and exactly the situation I want to be in…I’ll go out there with the intention of winning every match,”

Good luck to both players and we look forward to them bringing their knowledge and experience from this tour, to the site.
