Will Greenwood is one of England's greatest ever rugby players. In a professional career that spanned 11 years and 55 international caps he established a reputation as an unsurpassed mid-field creator. The second highest international try scoring centre of all time, he was an integral part of England's victorious World Cup campaign of 2003, a character and leader in one of the most successful team dynamics seen in recent times. Since retirement Will has gone on to establish himself as one of the foremost voices in the rugby media; a renowned analyst, and one of the most intelligent and entertaining characters in the game.

Will Greenwood studied Economics at Durham University. On graduating he took up a position on the City trading floor at Midland Global Markets (now HSBC). Thrown in to a highly pressurized environment based on split second decisions, it proved invaluable experience for his subsequent career in rugby.

On the international stage Will Greenwood was selected for the triumphant British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa in 1997, and during the 1997/98 season he made his full debut under Clive Woodward for the autumn series against Australia. Despite missing virtually the whole of the 1998/99 season through injury, he was selected for the 1999 Rugby World Cup.

An integral part of England's Six Nations victories in 2000 and 2001,  Will Greenwood was on  form in England's  Grand Slam win in 2003. 

Under the inspirational leadership of Woodward, Will Greenwood was then part of the World Cup winning squad of 2003 – a team that has become synonymous with attention to detail, clear thinking under pressure, trust, leadership and self belief. Will finished the tournament joint top try scorer, an achievement made all the more remarkable by the fact that his wife experienced problems with her pregnancy during the tournament, necessitating a dash back to England in the latter stages.

Will Greenwood also played for the  British & Irish Lions in the 1997, 2001 and 2005 Throughout his 13 seasons at the top, Will Greenwood  was a dedicated professional combining a fantastic work ethic with a desire to continuously learn and improve his game. Despite significant injury setbacks and occasional moments of self doubt and personal tragedy his focus, determination and perseverance led him to the top of the national and international game.

Off pitch his focus has remained undimmed. With a reputation as a bright, articulate and entertaining personality Will has established himself as a hugely popular and respected presenter for Sky Sports. Alongside a weekly column in the Daily Telegraph he has firmly cemented himself as one of the most insightful and intelligent commentators in the game today. 

Proud father to 3 children, he lives to the west of London and spends what spare time he has playing golf, following Manchester City and channeling his infectious enthusiasm in to any sport that is thrown his way.
