We are excited to have two great sporting professionals at our Sports Dinner next month and look forward to welcoming parents, Old Novaportans, partners and friends as we celebrate together the importance of sport at Adams.
Former national squash champion Adrian Davies with be attending as our MC for the evening and we are also delighted to have former Welsh rugby union player Tom Shanklin as our guest speaker.
“Tom Shanklin made his Wales debut against Japan in 2001, while playing his club rugby with Saracens. He became a dependable presence in the Wales midfield, with an excellent scoring record at both international and domestic level. His father Jim Shanklin, was also a great rugby player, winning four caps for Wales.
"Tom played his first top level rugby for London Welsh before joining Saracens in 1999. He played for the London side for four seasons before becoming one of Cardiff Blues' first signings in 2003. He was by this point an established international, having made his Six Nations debut against France in 2002. He was selected by Steve Hansen for the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia, playing in Pool games against Tonga and New Zealand, notching a try in the latter. His first taste of genuine success at international level came in the 2005 Six Nations when, in tandem with Gavin Henson, he formed arguably the best centre partnership in Europe as Wales won their first Grand Slam in nearly 30 years.”
