About the Author

Sam Warbuton is acknowledged as one of the best open-side flankers in the world. He made his debut for Wales against the USA in 2009 and captained his country for the first time in June 2011 at the age of 22, 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. In July 2018, he announced his retirement from rugby union.


'A terrific book. No one put their body on the line quite like Sam Warburton.'
Brian O'Driscoll

'It was an absolute privilege to play against Sam. An inspiring leader with an equally inspiring story to tell.'
Jonny Wilkinson

'I'm so accustomed to doing these rugby/football book serialisations and most of the time am left somewhat underwhelmed. But from start to finish I feel Warburton really delivers. Really candid, takes you inside the dressing room, behind the scenes anecdotes few know about and nicely written in chatty fashion.'
Head of Sport, WalesOnline

'He will go down as one of the great players but an even better captain for his ability to exhort his team-mates to new heights.'
Rugby World

'[An] impressive memoir... Warburton's account of his career, cut short by persistent injuries at the age of 29, is full of passion and candour and takes the reader right into the dressing room.'
The Times
