An Evening with Michael Lynagh, AM

We are delighted to invite you to An Evening with Michael Lynagh, former Wallabies Captain and now a renowned sports commentator and businessman. Michael will talk about his life both on and off the pitch and you will have an opportunity to put your questions to the former Wallabies Captain.


The talk will begin at 7.30pm, however, doors will open at 6.45pm and refreshments from the bar will be available to purchase.  Copies of Michael’s book, Blindsided, will also be available to purchase on the night.


Michael will be happy to take questions on the night and should you wish to submit a question in advance, please do send it directly to talk@hamptonschool.org.uk. We will endeavour to get through as many as possible on the night!



Australian rugby legend, Michael Lynagh, had a remarkable career at the very top of the game. Lynagh, who won 100 caps for Queensland, made his Test debut in 1984 aged just 20 and was part of Australia's Grand Slam-winning team later that year.


He was capped a total of 72 times for Australia and, until he handed over kicking duties, maintained the remarkable feat of scoring in every test he played in. An inspirational playmaker, he scored 911 points for Australia before he retired in 1995, which was a world record at the time.


Michael Lynagh captained Australia from 1993-95 and was Vice-Captain when they won the 1991 World Cup. Following his international retirement, he joined Saracens at the start of the professional era.


After retirement, Michael Lynagh worked in property management and as a popular pundit on Sky Sports, before suffering a stroke in 2012. Fortunately the only impact of the stroke was some visual impairment and he was able to walk out of hospital ten days later. Michael has since written a book, Blindsided, about his experience and has become a leading advocate of stroke awareness. He now combines a career with Dow Jones Corporate with his work as a sports commentator.
