Speaker enquiry

As former fly-half, Paul is the all-time highest scorer for his former club the Northampton Saints.

Paul made his first appearance for the Saints in 1993 and went on to score 2,784 points in 259 games, winning a Heineken Cup winners’ medal with the club in 2000. He also scored 400 points in 32 appearances for England, a total only exceeded by Johnny Wilkinson.

During his playing career, Paul was a member of the victorious British & Irish Lions squad that toured South Africa in 1997 and the 2003 England squad, who won the Rugby World Cup under Clive Woodward in Australia. Paul went on to become the joint-Saints boss in November 2004, steering the club away from relegation on the last day and after taking sole charge Paul went on to lead the team to the Heineken Cup semi-finals three years later.

Since leaving Northampton Saints Paul set up a performance consultancy firm, called Actuality with Ex- Hampshire cricketer, Rickey Ricketts. Actuality works with individuals and teams, in both sport and business, to ensure that when individuals need to perform the quality of their mental preparation and ability to control their emotions, are reasons for success not failure.

Paul still remains a familiar face in the rugby world as a prominent rugby broadcaster on both the BBC and BT Sport.

Loved seeing so many grassroots rugby players get their Twickenham debut in the first @NatWest_Rugby #NWRFInvitational yesterday. I was coach-turned-pundit with my co-commentator @George_Fordy - not a bad way to spend an afternoon 👍


Fantastic day out with @QKidsFirst and the seriously impressive @Timmytammy8 ball retention was always my strong point though 😜 #QuilterKidsFirst
