Rob Andrew gave a motivational speech to a recent CIOB event - next date, the England dressing room.

Former England fly half Rob Andrew stayed well clear of the Millennium stadium the other week, preferring to address an audience of more than 100 construction professionals as Gavin Henson scored a final penalty to secure a Welsh victory over his old team.

Andrew appeared at the North East Chartered Institute of Building Conference to speak about the team-building and motivational techniques that could be applied in business as well as on the field. He was described by Kevin Kinnon, managing director of sponsors Protech Resourcing, as “an inspiration to all those who attended” although some of the England supports may have wished he could have send some of that inspiration towards Cardiff two weeks ago.
