Dylan Hartley is England’s second most capped rugby player of all time.
He moved to the UK from New Zealand on his own aged 16-year-old to embark on his rugby dream.
Hartley joined the Senior Academy of Northampton Saints in the summer of 2005 and quickly rose through the England ranks.
As Captain of The Saints, he led the club during the most successful period in their history. He spearheaded a pack that dominated across the Premiership and Europe.
He helped the club to an immediate promotion back to the Premiership. This was followed by an incredible run winning the Premiership title, two European Challenge Cups and an Anglo-Welsh Cup. They also reached separate Premiership and Heineken Cup finals.
Hartley’s performances at Saints earned him international recognition. His first Test start was at Old Trafford in 2009 where England played Argentina.
Since 2009, Dylan has racked up almost a century of caps, winning three Six Nations titles including the Grand Slam in 2016, just three months after becoming Captain.
After that successful campaign, Hartley led England to an historic 3-0 Test series victory over Australia, before captaining a successful defence of their Championship title and a series win over Argentina the following year.
Hartley has constantly proved he has a unique resilience to both stay at the top, and come back from times of adversity.
