Sam Warburton – Captain, British and Irish Lions – Australia 2013

May 13, 2013

Last Friday, 10th May 2013, I was involved in organising a celebration party for Sam Warburton, recently selected as Captain for the upcoming British and Irish Lions tour of Australia. He lives locally to one of the restaurants I do graphic design and marketing work for – The Juboraj Indian and Bangladeshi Restaurant in Rhiwbina, Cardiff. There’s a signed photo on the wall of him stating that it’s his favourite restaurant. Anyway – the night went very well with some great speeches from the owner of the restaurant, who has known Sam and his family for many years, as well as his old school teacher, among others. It was an emotional night for Sam and I was particularly pleased at his, and his families response, to the portrait I did that we presented to him during the evening. Apparently it will take up pride of place on the walls with some others he has which is very pleasing. All in all he’s a very personable and humble man and has a lovely family including a twin brother who I was unaware of. Good luck to Sam and all the Lions – looking forward immensely to watching the games!
