Profile: Sam warburton, Wales rugby captain

Click to follow

One hesitates to condone such rampant xenophobia, but as citizens of the UK it wouldn't be right to cheer for any Rugby World Cup team but Wales now that England have been knocked out. In fact, had we known how the tournament would turn out, we might have supported Sam Warburton's side in the first place. After all, the 23-year-old captain has managed to lead a set of players who don't appear to believe they're living out the last days of Rome and who aren't determined to fly home a national disgrace. No jumping off ferries for them, nor pre-match binges, ambush marketing, straddling ex-girlfriends... We could go on.
