Ashley Williams: All about Wales at Euro 2016

This week on Captains, Sam is joined by former Wales football captain Ashley Williams.  Ashley was the skipper as Wales defied the odds to reach the semi-final of Euro 2016. Under the management of Chris Coleman, Ashley captained the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey and here he lifts the lid on the bonds that made that team so special.  Sam & Ashley compare notes about playing England, how to balance the emotion of big national occasions with carrying out a game plan and the importance of empowering other voices in the group to speak.  To get in touch with the show, email [email protected] and for extra content search for ‘Captains with Sam Warburton’ on LinkedIn.  If you are listening on Apple and would like to listen to this episode ad-free, as well as getting access to Crowd's other sports shows, click here: You can also listen ad-free on Amazon music.  Music courtesy of BMG Production Music.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Who doesn't love rugby? No man has played for England more than Ben Youngs. He’s also a scrum-half so he’s spent most of his 127 games chatting away to team-mates, opposition and referees. His mate Dan Cole also has over 100 caps, is still in the England squad, and has cult hero status thanks to his no-nonsense approach to most of life’s events. They’ve spent 20 years together at Leicester Tigers, toured together for the British and Irish Lions, and now podcast together every week. Throughout the Six Nations they’ll bring their ultimate guide to the championship, give you a behind the scenes tour of Twickenham, and tell you what really happens inside an England camp. They’ll occasionally have guests, and special correspondent Joe Marler will be on speed dial for whenever they need him.
