Steve Borthwick: Saracens skipper set for Twickenham farewell
steve-borthwick-saracens-skipper-set-for-twickenham-farewell
A former England international, well used to the http://www.officialsanfranciscogiants.com/WOMENS-WILLIE-MAYS-JERSEY.html potlight but rarely comfortable in it, respected and revered by his peers, and set to play his final game of rugby union this weekend. On Saturday, just hours before Jonny Wilkinson strolls out for Toulon at the Stade de France ready to take on Castres in the Top 14 final, Twickenham is to host another fond farewell. Having already clocked up more top-flight appearances than any other player, Steve Borthwick will add just one more to his impressive tally of 264 when he leads out Saracens in English rugby's end-of-season showpiece. The match against Northampton Saints, which will decide the next destination of the Premiership trophy, will be the 34-year-old lock's last. "The players keep reminding me," Borthwick told BBC Radio 5 live. "There's lots of lasts - the last this, the last that, the Pete Rose Phillies Jersey ast Tuesday afternoon training session." The last instruction barked at a team-mate, the last demand for better from those around him, the last persuasive word or two in the direction of a referee. Borthwick is "the nicest man in the world off the field", insists former Bath and England team-mate Mike Tindall, but also a "nightmare" on it. "He's always in your ear, always in the ref's ear," Tindall explained. "When we were at Bath, for a young man who came in when he did, he just wanted to boss everything. "He'd tell seasoned internationals where they were going wrong - he set a high standard all the time that he expected people to live up to. And he wasn't scared of telling whoever it was if they weren't living up to it. "He is intense because, like Jonny, he wants to succeed and he always wants to make sure he's fully prepared." Born in Carlisle, Borthwick made the move south, via Preston Grasshoppers, to join Heineken Cup holders Bath in 1998. But his arrival at The Rec, aged 19, coincided with the beginning of a 10-year trophy drought for the club - a run only brought to an end when Borthwick led them to Amlin Challenge Cup glory at the expense of Worcester in what would be his final Bath appearance in 2008. Despite enduring a relatively barren period in the West Country, his performances in blue, black and white earned him a Test debut against France in the 2001 Six Nations. It was to be the first of 57 caps for his country - 21 one of them during an up-and-down spell as captain, which included heavy defeats by New Zealand and South Africa in the 2008 Autumn Internationals and a third-placed finish in the 2009 Six Nations. But, although his omission from Clive http://www.brownsnflofficialauthentic.com/BROWNS-PIERRE-DESIR-JERSEY oodward's World Cup-winning squad in 2003 would also come as a disappointment, Borthwick is only positive about his time in an England shirt. "As a boy you're watching England teams play and you want to be able to do that one day and I've done it more than 50 times and captained my country," he said. "That's incredible for me to have had those opportunities.
