Clubhouse Conversations LIVE Shaun Edwards
Speakeasy Club is delighted to partner with Barry RFC, in the Vale of Glamorgan and welcome Rugby’s dual code behemoth, Shaun Edwards to the Clubhouse on Friday 1st December.
Over 14 years representing hometown team Wigan in Rugby League, with over 450 appearances and over 270 tries. Shaun has 37 winners medals whilst playing in league, voted man of steel in 1990 and in 2015 was the 25th inductee in the Rugby league hall of fame. Shaun also had stints with London Broncos twice, Balmain Tigers in Sydney and Bradford Bulls.
After 10 years at Wasps working with a certain Warren Gatland, Shaun joined the Welsh National set up and over 12 years commanded incredible respect on and off the pitch. As well as a place on the 2009 British & Irish Lions tour as defence coach, there were 6 Six Nations Championships, 3 Grand slams and 2 World Cup Semi Finals (and plenty of great memories!).
Shaun joined the French National set up, winning another Grand Slam in 2022, becoming the only coach to win multiple Grand Slams with 2 different Nations in 6 Nations history.
Hosted by Speakeasy Club and supported by Barry RFC, Shaun will reminisce on some tales from his career on and off the pitch. This will be followed by a Q&A including a deep dive into his time with Wales, Wigan & the Lion’s (and who knows, maybe a special World Cup story?!) as well as questions from the audience.
We will also be raising money for charity on the night – for Business Beats Cancer Cymru – auctioning a signed France jersey, personalised to the winning bidder.
630pm – VIP Meet & Greet
730pm to 9pm – Evenings conversations with Shaun & Q&A
Barry RFC, 16 & Over only.
Theatre style seating.
Tickets Available for Barry RFC Members from 9am Friday 14th July and General sale from 9am Monday 17th July.
As part of our commitment to being inquisitive, learning about others and ourselves. We’re both passionate & proud of our #shareyourshirt campaign.
On the night of the 1st December, we will be encouraging you to wear your favourite rugby shirt. It can be for any reason whatsoever. We want to start conversations with like-minded people, find out about why that shirt and that team. The aim is to encourage people to learn something they didn’t know before, promoting curiosity and openness.
There will be a free drink on the night for anyone wearing a classic Shaun Edwards Wigan shirt!
We really look forward to welcoming you to the Clubhouse on the 1st December, so sign up through the above link to secure your place!
Simon, the team at Speakeasy Club and Barry RFC
