Former scrum-half Rob Howley won 59 caps for Wales, scoring 10 tries. He captained his country to 15 wins in 22 matches, including a run of 10 successive victories in 1999.

Howley’s numerous other honours include Welsh Schools and Under-21 levels; Wales Students, Wales A and Wales B. He gained the distinction of Welsh Player of the Year in 1996 and 1997.

As a player, he was part of two British & Irish Lions tours, in 1997 to South Africa – where he suffered a shoulder injury and missed the Tests – and 2001 to Australia. He was one of the tour captains down under and played in the first two Tests before sustaining a broken rib, which ruled him out of the series decider.

He played for Bridgend, Cardiff and London Wasps, helping Wasps to win the Heineken Cup, European Challenge Cup and two English Premiership titles.

Howley has been part of the Wales coaching team since January 2008, helping lead Wales to three RBS 6 Nations titles, including two Grand Slams, and the semi-final of the 2011 Rugby World Cup. He took charge of the national side as interim Head Coach during the 2012 Summer Tour and Autumn Internationals, the successful 2013 RBS 6 Nations and 2016 Autumn Series.

He was attack coach during the 2009 British & Irish Lions Tour to South Africa under Ian McGeechan, and retained the role under Gatland in the 2013 British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia, helping the Lions secure their first series win since 1997.
