Martin Bayfield the ex British Lion made his debut for England in 1991 and played for the first team until 1998 when a serious neck injury forced him retire from the game. He had won the Rugby Football Player of the Year title in his career span.
He gained a creditable 31 international caps, playing in the 1992 and 1995 Grand Slam sides. He was a part of the 1995 World Cup Squad to play against South Africa and was selected for five out of six tests. Martin also played in all three tests on the British Lions' tour to New Zealand.
Martin has also represented the Barbarians, Midlands and British Police sides and previous clubs include the Metropolitan Police RUFC and Bedford RUFC. He is currently involved in coaching a RUFC youth development side.
Martin has been the body double for Robbie Coltrane in the first three Harry Potter movies and is currently filming the fourth film “The Goblets of Fire”
At 6’10”, former British Lion and England International, Martin could legitimately be described as one of the biggest people on the after dinner circuit!
However it is not only his size which sets Martin apart. As one of the country's most popular after dinner sports speakers Martin entertains audiences with tales of his time as a rugby international as well as his previous career in the police force.
In addition to speaking, Martin writes for the Daily Telegraph, broadcasts for Radio 5 Live and acts in the Harry Potter films; he is an immensely funny and quick witted speaker whose abilities also include MC-ing and singing. By booking Martin you will be guaranteed a rollercoaster ride.
