Captains: The Story So Far

This week on Captains, Sam delves into the archive to reflect on some of his favourite conversations from the series. Sam has been joined by a different world-class sporting leader each week to compare notes, relive those life changing moments and share stories about what it’s really like to wear the armband at sport’s highest level. Olympic heroes, World Cup winners, Ryder Cup winners, Premier League stars; they’ve all spoken openly and honestly about their leadership journey, offering valuable insights we can all learn from. From dealing with the thrill of success to bouncing back after disappointment - it’s self-improvement through storytelling. Like what you’ve heard?

Om Podcasten

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.
