Catt was appointed England rugby captain in the 2007 Six Nations Championship, making an extraordinarily successful comeback.
-He was a key member of the 2003 Rugby World-cup winning England side.
-Catt has been a fixture of the England team for over a decade and has played in three separate World Cups.
-Full of entertaining stories, stretching from the era of Will Carling's captaincy in the 1990s up to 2007.
-Fascinating on rugby strategy and tactics, as befits someone destined to take a coaching role when he retires.
-Was idolized when he played for Bath, and now is a hero at London Irish. Has an interesting story to tell of his move from South Africa to England, and how he coped with the change in cultures.
