Thereafter, he missed only two Test matches over the next decade. He took over the All Black captaincy in 1992 and went on to become the second-most capped New Zealand player of all time. He played his 92nd and last international on November 29, 1997.

‘Sean draws parallels between sport and business. He mixes well with all levels of the organisation and puts the time in before and after his session to understand the business challenges and relate this to his rugby experiences.’ Nestlé UK
‘For a big man, who ate other men for breakfast on the playing field, he is surprisingly a very good speaker. He speaks from the head and the heart. As with his game, what you see is what you get and for big organisations this is great to listen to.’ Heinz
