Sam Warburton (C)

6ft 2
6ft 2
16st 4

Wales' World Cup captain and a well-deserved accolade. Might only be 22 but our new magnificent seven has shown assured composure since given the leadership reins. No specialist open side cover in squad, so promises to be busy few weeks for Warburton in New Zealand.

Enter a concise good luck message below. These messages will be printed on the players' Welsh jerseys which they will wear at some point during the Tournament

Good Boys Wales!

A truly great Team performance. That match will be the benchmark for ALL other teams at the World Cup. More intensity than final Tri-Nations match, Aussie Vs NZ.

We are Proud of you Wales.
Lead your Men Well Sam.

Clare Rodgers said:

Just to let you know that you have an extra 30 supports for your match on Sunday. My daughters kindy had an all blacks day and she came dressed in her welsh bonnet, rugby shirt and welsh flag. She also took all our Welsh things with her. The kids loved it so much that my husband is going to teach them the anthem etc on Monday.
My husband will be at the match on Sunday (finances don't premit us to go) but Good LUCK and us welsh/kiwis wish you well.

Sam, for you and the whole squad:

Running through the battlefield,
Blood red scarlet shirt,
A battle for the gainline,
Fighting through the hurt.

Dragons' heart fast beating,
Pulses running high,
Driving, pushing forward,
Reaching for the sky.

Victory is nearing,
Arms raised amongst the cheers,
A band of bloodied brothers,
To be be remembered through the years.

Everyone in Wales believes you can do it.
Believe it yourselves!
The whole country is behind you.

All the very best of luck!

Mark Burton said:

To Sam and the whole squad,

Keep doing what who've been doing so far - believe in yourselves, because we all believe in you boys.

Hi Sam
When you signed my t-shirt in Abergavenny sportshop, you were very positive although having injured ankle.
'Warburton bread-bread of heaven-heaven is where I hope to be with a W tomorrow morning'!!!!!!!!!!

dave Price said:

Well done Wales.
Terrific performance against Ireland and you showed great determination, skill and desire. You obviously wanted a semi-final place much more than England and now you must be licking your lips for a show-down with the French.

Gwneud yn dda a phob lwc.

Debs said:

Congratulations to the whole team and coaching staff, amazing performances -remember you are supported and loved wherever you are in the world.

Cymru is going bananas. You cannot believe the feel-good factor you lads are generating. Cymru am byth! Need any help with the WC Victory speech?

Mark Burton said:

Another wonderful performance, agoinst Ireland. This is one very very proud Welshman, living in England. To hear all the pundits lavish praise on my fellow countryman, brings a lump to my throat. Keep believing Sam and all the very best against France.

So proud of the whole team for an absolutely incredible performance both today and for the entire tournament. You've all been sensational, both on an off the field and thoroughly deserve "best team of the tournament".
Australia or NZ next up - lets go out with a bang, and show who the real contenders are!
Such a young team, consistent superb performances - One hell of a welsh rugby future to look forward to!!!
Come on Wales!

BRIAN said:


Anne Dore said:

I hope this message reaches you. My abiding memory of this semi final will be one of immense pride in all of the team. The result wasn't the one we deserved. I hope that everyone in the squad has a great week and shows the world the class, belief, commitment and phenomenal rugby skills that this group of player has by winning the match next Friday.
You will always have the support of the welsh nation and you've earned the respect of the rugby world during this campaign. Thanks to you all

Helen said:

Had given my wristband away. Went to the Millennium Stadium. Will we ever forget the game?

Four hours later went past a shop with one wristband left. Bought it. Am wearing it with pride. You still have a World Cup match to play.

You have already done us proud, go and give the world showcase rugby on the 21st and win!

A big thank you to the entire team including the coaches, for your hardwork, your dedication, your courage and your commitment and thank you Sam for your leadership. Don't stop now guys!

Good luck..

Louis said:

Thanks Captain bach! Thanks for making us Welsh proud for some time. We know that this one incident, an accident will not tarnish your image. You are young and you will carry on leading this team and other teams to glory. It was a great campaign. You may not be in the last game but your leadership needs to be. Make the team put one mighty effort next week and then return home leading all your heroes back home. There is big welcome in the hillsides and in the North Coast for you, where I come from! God Bless.

Beth Towers said:


Imagine this? I'm Welsh, I married an Englishman, and I'm living in France! My husband has become an overnight trainee North Walian, and all the french people who live around here consider themselves incredibly lucky to have scraped a win.

What happened, happened. Some things in life are simply not 'just', but you need to put it behind you. You are a superb Captain and a huge credit to our country, as are all the rest of the squad. We are SO proud of you.

As far as we are concerned the REAL final next week will be Wales V Australia!

Tess Bartley said:

Terrible decision over your red card. We're all still so proud of how well the squad has done this year and Wales has definitely been the best team to watch in this tournament. It still hurts but this team has plenty of talent and time to display it at future competitions.

You are an incredible captain and you don't need to be on the pitch to lead the lads. Looking forward to seeing you all play in Cardiff soon.

Jackie Brown said:

Sam you have been the victim of rough justice - so very unfair. We are all very proud of you and the whole squad - you have been sensational and a true credit to your country. I have never been so proud to be Welsh. We know that you have the pride, the passion and perseverance to win on Friday and that you will be with the boys all the way. They will give you the performance of their lives! This will be the true final!
Come on Wales! We are behind you all the way!

Will & Jack said:

You're still Captain Fantastic -remaining dignified throughout-keep showing the way Sam!!

Megan Bunney said:

I don't know about
but I feel pretty damn proud
to say I stood with 60,000 fans
and screamed it out loud
I don't know how they felt
to stand on that green grass!!

How Did you feel?
You deserve this one good luck xxx :D

I’m Jamie Powell, a Welsh rugby exile living in east Sussex. My parents are from Ebbw Vale so growing up there was only one team for me to support! I watch all the Wales games and also try and watch as many club games as possible. I have also started to go to London Welsh games.

Exiled Wirraller and Ospreylian trapped in the capital; by day I sort out the lives of others but by weekend I report on all things rugby for the womenfolk of this fair hemisphere.

When I’m not aiding and abetting the hot flushes of the femmes of terraces around the land, I help report on the RaboDirect Pro12 for some of the more serious websites, so I’ll be here to bring you the lighter side of goings on.

My name is Jonathan North and as head photographer for Welsh photographic agency ASI I get to see a lot of Welsh rugby from up close. Through my work I enjoy rugby at all levels from the local club game right through to the national side.

In my blog I try and share my experiences from pitchside and the opinions that form there. As well as that I also include my latest photographic work to accompany my tales from the touchline.

I live in Birmingham, raised in Swansea, I’ve just turned 32. I live with my wife, I’m a Welsh rugby fan as well as a huge Swans and Ospreys fan. Myself and a group of friends go away to Edinburgh/Ireland every year for the away fixture in the Six nations.

I get more excited about the Six Nations than I do about Christmas. It’s going to be a very difficult campaign with expectation very high due to us making the semi-finals of the World Cup. We have very difficult away fixtures in Dublin & Twickenham. I manage to follow most regional games on the internet so I’m able to see who’s in form etc. I shall be in Dublin in February for the fixture. I’m looking forward to seeing the Welsh players back at their regions, hopefully they will maintain their high standards.

I'm a student from North Wales – where, believe it or not, we know as much about rugby as do those in the south! I am a former captain of the Gogledd Cymru Girls U18 Team as well as being a qualified coach and referee.

I fancy I could give Gatland a run for his money and I'm almost always convinced I'm right and the ref's wrong – something I have in common with most of Wales I think, particularly after recent events...


As a lock and Number 8 I am an ardent supporter of the pack. Not one to shy away from confrontation on the field, the same goes for my reporting. Currently located in London, living with the enemy, so to speak... I have to make my opinion heard down here. So, let me hear you... Come on Cymru!
