As the international rugby season gets underway, Sean Fitzpatrick, one of the giants of world rugby will be guest speaker at a Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce lunch.

With New Zealand’s hosting of the Rugby World Cup only two years away Sean, who is New Zealand’s most capped RWC player, is well-placed to talk about how we can maximise opportunities from the tournament as well as provide valuable insights on the current state of world rugby.

An entertaining and thought provoking speaker, this is your chance to meet the man himself.

Sean Fitzpatrick holds the world record for playing in 63 consecutive Test matches and being the world’s most capped hooker. His extraordinary international career began with his debut for the All Blacks in 1986 against France. He was appointed captain of the All Blacks in 1992 and played in 121 international matches, including 92 Test matches, a New Zealand record. Fitzpatrick also holds the record for most Test matches as an All Black captain (51) and has played in more Test match victories (74) than any other player.

He led New Zealand to a series win over the touring British Lions in 1993 and also led the All Blacks to a clean sweep in the first Tri-Nations tournament in 1996. He became the first New Zealander to captain a Test series win in South Africa. Sean was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit by the Governor General in 1997. He announced his retirement in May 1998 and at the end of 1999, Fitzpatrick was named as hooker in Rugby World magazine’s Team of the Century.
